Crashing Waves at Pemaquid Point

Crashing Waves at Pemaquid Point

I feel like I’ve had a very Chicago-centric photoblog as of late. I think part of it comes from Instagram, because I get a far greater reaction to Chicago pictures than anything else, but also because I naturally have more pictures of Chicago.

Living in Chicago I can grab my camera and head out any time to shoot some images. There have been numerous occasions I’ve taken my camera along as I run errands and randomly stopped to fire off a few stills. As with a lot of travel situations, I’m only in that location for a few hours to a maybe a week for some longer stuff. (Turkey, for example, I was only in for a mere six hours.) On this website, however, I could probably spread out the pictures more. So, the above picture is the first step in doing that.

I had never been to Maine before, so in October of 2009 I grabbed my camera and attended a weeklong photography workshop. I had a fantastic time and greatly improved on my photography, and its always good to keep learning. In addition, I was able to get out and explore some fantastic regional sights, like Maine‘s Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.

Waves Crashing at Pemaquid Point

Located in Bristol, Maine, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse was first built in 1827. However, because the builder used salt water in his mortar mix, it didn’t survive the elements very well, and a new light was built in 1835 (this time, without the use of salt water).

Over a century later, more than 100,000 people visit the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse annually, and the light is featured on the state’s quarter.

Maine’s Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

 

I have a couple of crazy/fun/artsy images from Maine’s Pemaquid Point Lighthouse on this website  (one of my favorite images is in my Portfolio Gallery), but no simple picture that just show the lighthouse.

So, here it is.

Reflections

I have a boatload of pictures from Maine.  In October of 2009 I went to the Maine Media Workshop and engrossed myself with other photographers crafting our skills.  Coming home, I had a few pictures I’m really proud of (which some can be found on the United States gallery page, others can be found by clicking here) and then a handful of additional photos that I really, really like.

In this image, the tide goes in and out, and creates little pools of water on the rocks.  This is Maine’s Pemaquid Point Lighthouse reflected in that pool.
