Blowdown

In the Acadia National Park on Isle Au Haut, Maine, there are areas called "blowdowns", where shallow-rooted fir trees live short lives, dying enmasse. Winter storm winds off the Atlantic sweep the island, blowing down the dead trees. Fog softens the grim landscape, luring the viewer toward an introspective state.
