Photographer's Note

Somes Sound
Last updated 1 year ago
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Maine, United States. Its deepest point is approximately 175 feet (50 m), and it is over 100 feet (30 m) deep in several places. The sound almost splits the island in two. While often described as the "only fjord on the East Coast",[1] it lacks the extreme vertical relief and anoxic sediments associated with Norwegian fjords, and is now called a fjard by officials[2][3] — a smaller drowned glacial embayment.
Somes Sound was named for the settler Abraham Somes.
