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.

Sunset over Katahdin from Sandy Stream Pond on the last full day of summer. I visited Baxter often this summer and plan to return this fall for the spectacular foliage.
