Start out at Acadia National Park and travel up to Fundy Trail, Canada. Are you ready for a Maine and Canada Travel Photography Adventure? This is an incredible photography trip to take in the spring, summer or fall months. We like the summer best so we can photograph our puffin friends.
Maine is the least densely populated U.S. state east of the Mississippi River. It is called the Pine Tree State; about 83% of its land is forested It has several unique geographical features. Machias Seal Island and North Rock, off its easternmost point. Also in this easternmost area in the Bay of Fundy is the Old Sow, the largest tidal whirlpool in the western hemisphere.
Machias Seal Island
Machias Seal Island is an island in the Gulf of Maine, about (9.9 mi) southeast from Cutler Maine. This area is a well-known place to go on Puffin tours. The season starts in May and runs through mid-August. There is also a great lighthouse to photograph that was constructed there in 1832.
West Quoddy Head
Maine has almost 230 miles of coastline (and 3,500 miles of tidal coastline). West Quoddy Head is the easternmost piece of land in the lower 48. Along the famous rock-bound coast of Maine are lighthouses, beaches, fishing villages, and thousands of offshore islands, including the Isles of Shols, which straddle the New Hampshire border. There are jagged rocks and cliffs and many bays and inlets. Inland are lakes, rivers, forests, and mountains.
