This is Pemaquid Light, a lighthouse in Maine famously known for the rocky cliffs that surround it.   While I took many shots with the rocks as part of the composition, I also took some shots like this which took a much simpler approach.  It was an incredible fall day with deep blue skies, and I thought the bright white of the fence and lighthouse would contrast nicely with the sky.

Have a great weekend!

    You’e right it does contrast beautifully and I like the framing. Sometimes its nice to get in nice and tight.

    Great shot, Steven. That awesome blue sky does make a great backdrop for the lighthouse and fence.
    This lighthouse looks exactly like the Concord Point Light in Maryland. Likely built around the same time. Nice work.

    can’t pass up a shot of Pemaquid. Nice and different composition of one of my favorite lighthouses.
