Sunset at Upper South Branch

This was the height of black fly season in Baxter State Park. To take this shot and many others on that trip I had to chase the blackflies away from my lens, and editing required spotting out not only the occasional dust spot, but quite a few black fly traces. The joys of the Maine woods in mid-June! The pond is surrounded by volcanic mountains composed of rhyolite–the Traveler range to the east and the South Branch and Black Cat mountains to the west.
