Having just bought a new camera (Nikon D700), we had to give it a work out before our first wedding of the season. We'll be at The Quincy Marriott and The Neighborhood Club in Quincy this coming weekend photographing Ericka and Mark's wedding, and you can be sure there will be a blog post dedicated to their wedding. In the meantime, we returned to some of our favorite spots, and we found some new ones, as well. You've certainly heard us rave about The Union Bluff in York, Maine (which is where we stayed on this jaunt). Check out this 30 second exposure, taken from our balcony at The Meeting House section of Union Bluff. It overlooks the motel section and the main building.
You can imagine and you can assume (and you'd be correct)... we visited some lighthouses on this short trip. This one (these two) are new to us. It's called Twin Lights of Thatcher Island. Here is a shot of one of the twins standing on its own:
And of course, you need to see the twins side by side:
No drive to Maine would not be complete without a new shot of Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth...
What's that, you say? You'd love to see Nubble Light at dawn? Joe heard you. He got up real early. He drove over to Nubble Light at 6:00am. And here is the shot he got... just for you.
We all know with dawn comes the sunrise...
Of all the pictures we took the past few days, we'll end with yet another "new to us" lighthouse. It's called Boon Island Lighthouse, off of York, Maine. It's about 6 miles out in the ocean, but catching the image at just the right moment in time makes it clear to anyone who views it that they are looking at a lighthouse.
Please take a moment, and let us know which image you like best, and why. We take pride in all our photos, but we love the feedback from our fans!
