What better way to start a new year by seeing the first sunrise at not only one of the most spectacular National Parks in the country, but also at the easternmost point in the US. Why is that relevant you may ask. Well because being the easternmost point in the US means that being there for the sunrise of the 1st day of the year, you are one of the first in the US to welcome in the new year!
For the past few years I have made it a point to go on a cool and/or new hike on the first of the year, and this year was no exception, and now that I live just 80 minutes away from Acadia it was a natural for me to spend the day there making images and hiking around.
Maybe you can start your own tradition and make it a point to go out and make some great new images on January 1st 2013, I know I will.
