09/09/16 Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

Posted: March 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

I have photographed Bass Light many times. The light is always different. This lighthouse usually draws a crowd at sunset and photographers are sometimes shoulder to shoulder. These images were taken during the month of September when the crowds aren’t quite as bad. The best time is after midnight, always have the place to myself. Pretty exciting when you can only hear the waves against the rocks, but cannot see them. The entire area is covered with a red blanket of light from the beacon.
