Favorite Places – Bass Harbor Lighthouse

One of the favorite places I have had the pleasure photographing is the Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Maine.   Admittedly, it is one of the most photographed lighthouses on the planet – but as they say, it isn’t a cliche if you haven’t shot it yet.    Lighthouses  hold a particular appeal to me, probably because they are in short supply here in Kansas.    In 2008 I was lucky enough to visit Acadia National Park and surrounding areas, including this lighthouse.  There are two main places to shoot from, one on the west side looking back east (good for sunrise), and one to the east looking west (good for sunset).  We were there for sunset on this occasion, so east it was.
