Project 365/199 – Perfection

How is it possible that such a perfect evening could be?

Traveling to Pretty Marsh on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, I arrived to the dock to photograph the upcoming sunset.

Upon arrival, a Loon was fishing next to the pier.

While setting up to shoot and watching this foreboding sky, two dolphins breached right next to the dock where I was standing. I was able to watch them breach a number of times and hear them exhale. Just a glorious sound.

As if that wasn’t enough, it began to rain, and in the rain a double rainbow shined over the harbor across from the sunset.

You can just imagine my excitement to experience perfection. Not only was there a loon, two dolphins, then two rainbows in a light rain shower, but to top it off was a glorious sunset.

Life doesn’t get any better than this.

Now for something fun. Using the 360 Panorama App for iPhone I captured the full scene. Minor edits in lightroom included cropping, clarity, vibrance and exposure adjustments.

Place close attention to the very beginning of this brief video clip and you can enjoy the dolphins as I did.

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
