Stunning. Inspiring. Astonishing. Well, I really don’t have adjectives sufficient to describe the photos by Tom Blagden, Jr. in a new book, Acadia National Park – A Centennial Celebration.
Tom has been a professional nature photographer for 35 years, concentrating on Maine, South Carolina, and Costa Rica. I have honestly never seen photos this stunning. From gorgeous sunsets to an amazing photo of a herring gull chasing an osprey that has an alewife in its claws, I spent a lot of time savoring each photo.
Linda and I now have the book on the coffee table in our living room, where we flip the page each day to enjoy a different photograph. All of the photos were taken in and around Acadia National Park, and the book was published as part of the park’s 100th anniversary.
