Week 48 … #Shaped Bokeh … Morning in Acadia

_NIK7721-Edit

Acadia, Boulder Beach in early morning.

Recently, I spent several days in Acadia with the hopes of capturing some great sunrises and sunsets.  Last year on our visit to Acadia, the weather wasn’t the best so I was pleased when I saw we were going to have great weather.  I did the typical sunrise trek to Cadillac Mountain for sunrise photos along with about a hundred other folks but the real shots were along the east coastal trail in the early morning hours.  The image above is at Boulder Beach with its smoothed basketball-size boulders that make up the rocky shore.  These round, egg shaped rocks made a perfect foreground to capture the rising sun against the distant cliff.  I used this image for this week’s assignment of ‘shaped bokeh’.  Although, the bokeh isn’t really shaped, I hope at a later time to learn how to do ‘shaped bokeh’.  In fact, some may argue that this is lens flare and not bokeh!
