I took this shot as massive waves were crashing on the Maine coast at the famous Nubble Lighthouse. The winds were rough, and there were several seagulls circling the area. Apparently, this is the most photographed lighthouse in the world...but hopefully you can find something different in my shot than in some of the others you've seen.

 

This is a single RAW exposure...no HDR. Post-processing was done in Lightroom.
