Mainly the credit goes to photographer ABM Musa perfect point of view and timing is superb to shout that picture(sunrise) and fog also helps him.
Great atmosphere, I must say. The photograph has been executed really well, using a slow exposure, perhaps and that gives it a painterly quality. Also the presence of both cooler and warmer tones gives it a nice color mix and pleasant feel. Thanks for sharing this.
This still highlights the very distinct characteristics of the Maine shoreline, but does so in a very unique way. Jaw dropping...
sólo puedo dar mi agradecimiento sincero por mostrar el mundo en todo su extensión , es maravilloso . una obra de arte para deleite de nuestros sentidos mas aún cuando con certeza sé que jamás podré viajar a esos lugares exóticos ,tan hermosos
Not a photographer myself so I can only magine the effort and equipment and knowledge that was required to capture this photo. 'Well done' to the photographer.
"The fog comes on little cat feet" is a line from a poem by Carl Sandburg. The tsunami of fog inundating the coastline in this photo is much more substantial than little cat feet fog. It's the type of major mist in which George Harrison's friends have lost their way. The photographer had to climb a mountain to rise above it. He was there early enough that the rays of the morning sun hadn't reached the clouds in the distance as yet. The sun's rays are casting a long shadow off the island headland, and have turned the fog in the foreground to a golden illumination. The photographer has found in Acadia National Park the idyllic vision of unspoiled wilderness invoked by the fabled accounts of Arcadia.
Fog is often the enemy of a photographer. It obfuscates and obscures. In this picture Mr Musa has risen above the morning cloud as it gently bathes the islands in the first light of the day. There is a soft breeze from the left that conjures up an airfoil obeying the laws of fluid dynamics. On the right of the photo the sun is bleaching out the colour from the sky.
I really like the hues of blue and yellow that mix laterally and vertically. This is an excellent example of turning lemons (the fog) into lemonade (a beautiful photo). Well done.

@David Hutchinson Thanks for your comment! The equipment was in fact very basic. It was a beginner level Nikon D3000 with 55-200 kit lens. However, I was lucky to have great light of the sunrise and nice fog.
