Cadillac Mountain, Maine, USA

Description
Part of the Acadia National Park, this mountain is located on Mount Desert Island. At just 466 metres high, it was eroded from a larger mountain range by huge, mile-deep glaciers during the last ice ages.

The town below you is Bar Harbor - not to be confused with its apocalyptic, radioactive twin, Far Harbor.

Captured in September 2018.

Catching up with the huge backlog of photos I've accumulated and need to process - here's an autumnal bit of Maine. Captured in a bit of a hurry, coverage could be a bit better in places - not helped by running out of memory card perhaps a little early. (16GB of photos!)

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens. A bit of an upgrade from my very battered 7D, definitely. Shot at f/8, but f/11 might have been better for a bit more depth of field. (Full frame is fun.)

Workflow is pretty similar to previous stuff, although slightly streamlined thanks to Reality Capture improvements - this will get you started if you're interested:

I've aimed for a pretty hefty texel density for the foreground stuff. It seems to have worked. Trees could do with a bit of cleanup, definitely.

Audio is quite placeholdery - some stuff from Freesound.org:

Both CC0, but I'm crediting them anyway. Just try to stop me!

Most certainly the best outdoor photogrammatery I've ever seen.

I'm surprised how well you managed to capture the trees. Great work!
