BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE: UPWARDS

On Saturday, we visited Acadia National Park. I did not know what to expect to see. All I knew was that it was by the shore and I’d b seeing some Atlantic waters.

My husband warned me about two things: the shoreline was rocky; and, the current was very strong. I guess his warnings did not sink it because I was completely surprised when we finally got to Acadia at Schoodic Point. Imagine seeing a rock mountain jutting out into the waters instead of little boulders decorating the shoreline.

Imagine seeing the giant sprays of water breaking into the rocks with thunderous roars.

They were nothing like I have seen before in the Philippines where beaches were quite common. Acadia was a completely different beach-going experience for me. Instead of lounging in the sand, we walked and hopped skipped and sat on the rocks. We shivered in a summer day cooled by Atlantic winds.

The sight, the sounds were awesome.

  1. Oh Imelda these photos are gorgeous! You would think the ocean would be more interesting in colors (perhaps I say that because I love blues) but there is a dimension, a depth, even a foreboding in the second shot particularly that is created in black and white. Very dramatic. I enjoyed! 🙂

  2. Great take on the entry Imelda and these are just gorgeous! Thanks so much for taking part and for sharing hon. Much appreciated. 😀 *big hugs*

  3. Great photos! I can imagine the roar of waves, too. This might be the type of beach for me because I detest sand on my feet. A couple times a year, my husband will take the kids to CA beaches, but I usually opt to do something else because of the sand. I know, it’s strange!
