Hadlock Stream

Posted by on Dec 3, 2016 in Hike

Hadlock Stream originates at the southern end of Lower Hadlock Pond, travels through the Northeast Harbor Golf Club course, crosses Sargent Drive, and empties into Somes Sound. This picturesque bridge is located on the Golf Club trail which is part of a network of trails maintained by the Northeast Harbor Village Improvement Society (VIS). Incorporated in 1898, the VIS maintains 14 trails outside the boundaries of Acadia National Park from Northeast Harbor village up to Lower Hadlock Pond and to the Asticou Stream.

I took this shot using a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR with a Canon 45mm tilt/shift lens. Mounted on a tripod, I tilted the lens to alter the plane of focus so that the entire bridge, from the steps to the far end, would be in focus. I exposed at f/8.0, ISO 100, for 0.4 seconds to capture the scene. A special thanks to my friends Kathe and Kenn from the MDI Photo Club for helping me compose this shot and for patiently waiting while I took it.
