Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Maine

A long stretch of striated rock leads from the bottom of the image up almost to the top. At the top sits a white lighthouse and a white building next to it. There is a red smaller building just to the right of this and another one to the right of the image. There is a still puddle halfway up the rock slope and the lighthouse and red building are reflected in it.
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Maine

This nearly 200 year old lighthouse in Maine sits atop one of the most beautifully striated rock formations I have ever seen. The seams of different coloured layers running up from the shore to the building could have kept me there photographing all day. This day, the fog of the morning had lifted giving beautiful sunshine, it had rained in the night and the pool was full, giving me the chance to get this reflection. My friend Mac (whose wife, Carol took me on my sightseeing tour) had specially requested a photo with the lighthouse reflected in the pool – an iconic shot, I’m sure, taken by every visitor to the site.

This is a memory from our visit to Maine in 2015. Steven was teaching at the Center For Furniture Craftsmanship and I got to travel around and see the sights.
