Iconic Maine Lighthouse / by Dave Hileman

Bass Harbor lighthouse has been photographed a lot. Morning, evening, night and even, like this, in the middle of the day. It is actually a small house but since it clings to the rock and you can shoot from the rocks below it looks taller than it actually is. In the evening the rocks are swarming with people, tripods and every kind of camera you can imagine. They start gathering well before sunset and I just was not up to another two hour effort so, here we are in the afternoon. And it was pleasant.
