This photograph is one that I really enjoy. I already blogged about it a little a while back.

I was far from the only photographer at the lighthouse on the morning I visited. I arrived just as the sun came up and captured some great shots with warmer colors. This one stands out for me though because of the strong morning sun reflecting off of the glass of the light tower. I also like the depth of the image helped by the 2nd lighthouse in the distance.

Don’t Be Rude to Others…

2 02 2009

In October, I had the opportunity to spend a sunrise at Portland Head Lighthouse just south of Portland, ME. After the sun rose, the blue sky of the day started to light the sky and the sun started to get really bright. I walked past an older man that was shooting with his tripod and set up about 10 yards to his left. I was able to capture some good shots of the lighthouse and I liked the angle that I found. As I started to pack up, the man encouraged me to take a look at the lighthouse from where he was standing. That advice led to one of my favorite shots of the morning.
