Photographing Nubble Light

Maine 2015-76.jpg

Nubble Light (AKA Cape Neddick Light) is located on a small island just off York, Maine. It was second on our list of lighthouses to shoot at sunset. When we arrived it was windy and very chilly and, of course, there were a half-dozen photographers there ahead of us. There was plenty of space on the nearby rock to set up, so we tried a few spots before settling in and waiting for the sun to set. (One dedicated shooter was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt. I'm not sure how he kept from freezing.)

Once again, the other photographers packed and left shortly after sunset, and we had the place to ourselves.

Has no one heard of the blue hour?
