Nubble from the Rocks - Nubble Light, York, Maine

Sometimes when you shoot a familiar subject, especially one you love, it is hard to come up with a different look. I have visited this island lighthouse a hundred yards off of the Maine coast several times and have photographed it from every angle. I have shot it from the south, straight on, from the north and even taken a boat to get its back side. You might ask yourself, then why does he keep visiting it? The answer is quite simple. It is the conditions that you encounter that makes each shot different. Whether it is great clouds, fog, evening light or early morning light, each of these help create the mood of the shot. At the end of the day, you can probably find tens of thousands photos of this lighthouse. The ones that stand out are the one that recreate a mood and feel that tell a story.
