Tourist season in coastal towns like Bar Harbor, Maine, can be a little overcrowded during the summer months, but usually come mid to late August it thins out a bit--not the case this year. When we arrived it was raining pretty good, so we hunkered down at one of many eateries--so didn't most of the tourist population. However, once the rain backed off we were one of the first ones to make our way back to Frenchman's Bay before it got too busy. The clouds were always threatening the during our visit, but they sure made for a dramatic background. The spot was one I had walked by hundreds of times in the past, but everything just seem to come into perspective this time around. The sailing ship, Margaret Todd, can be seen along with other working vessels moored in the bay. I used a Nikon D7100 with an 18-105mm lens to capture the moment. (f/22, 1/8, ISO-100, Tripod.) PS-LR.
