Lighthouse in Maine


We just returned from a summer trip to Maine. What a beautiful state!

I’m drawn to the ocean scenery, particularly the lighthouses. I have photographed several over the last ten years or so.

Here’s the Bass Harbor lighthouse on the tip of Mount Desert Island, near Bar Harbor. This is a classic shot which is seen on postcards and artwork. Notice the strong diagonal line from the rocks and the trees.

I took only my waterproof Pentax digital point and shoot, which I regret. I should have taken a camera with a real viewfinder…I could not see to frame or adjust the exposure in the bright light. But, I returned with some nice shots in any case.
