Sunset over Ducktrap

As I was driving home a few days ago, a brilliant glowing cloud appeared before me as I headed down Knights Pond Road.  I stopped the car, stood outside, and marveled at its beauty, then hurried home to grab my camera.  The short time that passed--about 3 minutes--was enough to diminish the brilliance, but was still lovely enough to remember and save.

The pictures are actually in reverse order from when I first turned onto the road.  When I grabbed my camera, I shot Ducktrap at the farm, then drove up to the original site, where the sunset now progressed to day's close.

  1. Beautiful! Makes one want to carry their camera at all times! We've been to the Camden area a few times and I'm always surprised to see "mountains" on the East coast of Maine!

  2. Ha ha! I used to live in the west, and Westerners would not consider them mountains. I think the Rockies are spectacular, but the Appalachians (including the Maine spur) have charm.
