Tenants Harbor Lighthouse - Sept. 2012

       On September 14th, 2012 my wife and I took a Sunset Lighthouse Cruise out of Port Clyde, Maine.  Under much less than optimal conditions (it clouded up early and was foggy on the horizon) we thoroughly enjoyed visiting and photographing five lighthouses off Mid-Coast Maine.  I find that any fair weather time spent on the waters off the Maine coast to be extremely special.  This evening was just that.  I also find that shooting lighthouses in less than perfect conditions to be very rewarding.  After all, if one wishes to truly depict these timeworn structures, one must shoot them in all conditions.  I will share the photos I took on this occasion in five separate posts.  This, the fourth, is a few photos of the Tenants Harbor Lighthouse.  It was still extremely overcast making photography difficult.  Nevertheless, I sincerely hope you enjoy the shots I took.
