Reaching out into the ocean


It has been a while since I was out with the camera. These photographs are from a wonderfully calm evening spent at Marshall Point Lighthouse in late August. That’s almost six weeks since I tripped the shutter : (

The New England fall foliage season is in full swing around these parts, but it doesn’t look promising for me to be able to get out to make any photographs. This will be a busy week with work and with soccer season winding down, but you never know, maybe I’ll be able to steal away for a few hours later in the week.

In the meantime, here are a few black and white renditions of what is a particularly striking lighthouse on the Maine coast. This is the lighthouse that Forrest Gump ran to and ran to and ran to in the movie as he traversed back and forth across the country. It is a unique structure, one that just begs to be photographed.

      Thanks for the comment Truels… I too like the “movement” captured in the water in the photographs you mentioned.

      Thanks Jack. I must have spent a couple of hours wandering around this wonderful scene checking out the possibilities… appreciate the feedback.

      Thanks Karen… as soon as I saw that rocky foreground in the last photograph I knew it was going to end up as a black and white. Fingers crossed I’ll get out this weekend.
