In my previous post I mentioned my plan for an early morning shoot at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, so here I am, bright and early after a late night of shooting stars. As I arrived the blue hour was slowly starting to lighten towards the pastel pinks of sunrise so I had to act quickly. I set up my first shot on the hill opposite of where I was last night and created the shot below.
As the sky lightened and headed toward the pinks and purples of early morning I headed back down to the shoreline to snag some golden hour shots of the striated rock.
And of course I had to shoot more of the lighthouse, particularly of the iconic photo of its reflection in the small puddle. As I look at the photo below I realize I should have taken some shots of just the reflection in the puddle but I guess that is for my next visit here.
As the day made its way toward afternoon I decided to visit another lighthouse in the area. The Doubling Point Light, built in 1892 is located on the Kennebec River. It’s a small lighthouse on a private road but at the end you will discover a very small parking lot not too far away from the lighthouse.
I did a lot of exploring in the area and ended up at Boothbay Habor to pick up some dinner. It’s a lovely town situated in a calm cove on the ocean. I loved the group of kayaks just hanging out in the water not too far away from the main pedestrian bridge.
It was a great to be able to explore the area rather than rush off to another destination. Tomorrow I’ll be moving on again and this time it will be to Acadia National Park.
