Fall on Mount Desert Island

Posted by on Oct 20, 2013 in Places

Our first fall on Mount Desert Island has been beautiful. The autumn color has lasted for weeks, and there's still plenty to enjoy. On Friday and Saturday we toured the island and I captured the images on this page using the Canon 5D3 with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. My new iPhone 5S has served well as an always-at-hand camera, but it can't compete with the big (and very heavy) full-frame Canon gear. For those of you who are not familiar with the Asticou Azalea Garden, it was designed and built in 1956 by Charles K. Savage, a life-long resident of Northeast Harbor. I recently met his son Ken who, along with other members of the Savage family, operate the Asticou Connection, a gallery in Town Hill featuring the work of area artists and craftsmen. Both the garden and the gallery should be must-see destinations on your next visit here.
