• Really adds to the composition. I love this red. - Olly Plumstead
  • Nice that you timed the shot to have the light pointing at you. Love when it glows red. - Raymond Larose -> raylarose.com

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.

Canon EOS 60D
Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
