Annisquam RocksBefore we made our way to the Cape Ann Tool Company this past weekend, Bob, Mike and I started our morning shooting at Annisquam Light in Gloucester.  I’ve shot this lighthouse many times, and my streak of being there with either clear or completely cloudy skies was still intact after this visit.  So instead of nice sunrise colors, I decided to try some long exposures, and also try to find some unique compositions as I did with this image.  I wanted to use this strip of lighter-colored rocks as a leading line to the lighthouse, and although they don’t lead directly to the light, I still like the effect.

    This is so beautiful. It fills with me longing for summer. I kind of like how the rock seems to leading to the sea rather than the lighthouse, because I feel like the lighthouse is at first what captures the attention, but then the rock serves to draw your attention out to the sea, and then everything seems small in comparison. I think it worked out really well!
