Different View of Cadillac Mountain

Sometimes the most realistic capture in a landscape photo, the exact landscape, doesn't do justice to the range of color, the texture, and the composition that creates a feeling beyond itself.  So here's an "interpretation" of a view of Bar Harbor and the Porcupine Islands from Cadillac Mountain that seems, at least for me, to quell the need to explain the experience of looking down from there after a climb.  

Wishing you the best of the holiday season for you and yours.
