Lighthouse Long Exposure

Today’s image is another shot of the Spring Point Ledge Light in Portland, Maine.  The long exposure here allowed the water to take on that silky look, but it also had an interesting effect on the light and colors in the sky.  The sun was rising to the right of the lighthouse, and the darker […]

This is the base of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in Portland, Maine.  As shown here and here, this type of lighthouse is sometimes called a spark plug design, and this one is a wonderful example of this style.  Its location on the breakwater makes access easy, and provides so many different ways to shoot […]

Spring Point Ledge Light

Here is another view of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse with more of the breakwater in the composition.  This is such a beautiful place to be at sunrise, and I can imagine how much the past keepers of the lighthouse must’ve appreciated their view.  Especially once the breakwater was built, and they weren’t as stranded […]

Well I’m pleased to report that my blog and I have decided to get back together again.  About two weeks ago we decided that we perhaps could use some time away from one another.  I had said some things I didn’t mean.  The blog said some things it didn’t mean.  Things were starting to get […]

Lighthouse Dawn

So it seems that my lighthouse theme must continue again today.  This is another shot of Eastern Light in Gloucester MA from my sunrise shoot there about a month ago.  It’s a 3 minute exposure which was sufficient to smooth out the choppy water, and also bring out the nice pre-dawn colors.  I continue to […]

On the Rocks

So I don’t think my obsession with lighthouses is going to abate any time soon.  This is the Eastern Point Lighthouse in Gloucester, and was shot this past weekend on a beautiful clear morning.  It’s located at the entrance to Gloucester Harbor, and is the third incarnation of the lighthouse that was originally constructed on this […]

Vintage Lighthouse

I’ve been in a lighthouse mood lately, and wanted to share a recent shot of Eastern Point Lighthouse in Gloucester, MA.  It was a windy and rainy afternoon when I took this shot, and the sky lacked any real drama.  So I decided to play with some vintage processing looks and textures, and ended up […]
