Surely there can’t be a more dramatic or photogenic lighthouse anywhere? Commissioned in 1827 by John Quincy Adams, Pemaquid Point Light is a striking and picturesque lighthouse located at the tip of the Pemaquid Penninsula in mid-coast Maine. The rocks at Pemaquid are some of the most dramatic around, with layers of jagged and impressive striations all seemingly pointing to the classic white lighthouse perched on the ridge above the roaring Atlantic Ocean. The winds were howling as I made this photograph, and as the low winter sun momentarily bathed the lighthouse in warm light, I was able to squeeze off a few frames. Not a bad detour on the way home after work on Friday, eh?
