The Azalea Garden is styled after a Japanese stroll garden with many traditional Japanese design features adapted for the natural setting and vegetation of coastal Maine. A meandering circular path leads visitors through a succession of garden rooms that inspire serenity and reflection or bring to focus a particularly lovely vista. Definitively, a calm and beautiful place to visit and find your inner peace. Enjoy!!!
During my visit to Acadia National Park I've got the opportunity to experience a lot of beautiful spots. The park is well maintained and, conveniently, has a road that goes completely around it: The Park Loop Road. This 27 mile road begins at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center (near Route 3 on the northern side of the island) and connects the Park's lakes, mountains, forests, and rocky coast. There are several parking areas and pullover points along the way.
As I was driving, the sun was setting really fast, so I pulled over to find a spot and just started to take pictures of the stunning vista. This gem of a National Park will not disappoint you as it will give you beautiful displays of Mother Nature at her best. Enjoy this sun kissed rocks as a chilly September day came near its end!

On our last day of the trip to Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island in Maine, we decided to pay a second visit to this gorgeous place, the Asticou Azalea Garden. Both, my wife and I were quietly walking and admiring the mesmerizing views of this unique place. If you get the opportunity to visit the state of Maine make sure to visit this peaceful and beautiful spot, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!!!
A Place to Meditate
On a chilly September morning we decided to go hiking in Acadia National Park to photograph a stream of water that runs under a stunning arch bridge. Little did we know that the creek was dry and that we were out for a surprise. I was a bit disappointed at first but the beauty of the place made that feeling go away really quick. We decided to make the best of the moment, so I placed the camera on the tripod, frame the shot and took a selfie. I was all worth it, enjoy!!!
The Dry River
Today I bring you a shot of a partial reflection taken at Acadia National Park in Maine. I just finished shooting the sunrise at Sand Beach and was heading back to my hotel when I spoted this scene. I tried to get a better shot but the pond was drying out so this was the best I could capture. Nonetheless, the warm, soft yellow light from the rising sun that caressed the trees was worth the shot. Enjoy!!!
