After The Storm

Bass Harbor, Acadia, Maine.

This lighthouse is probably the second most photographed on any coast in Maine (Portland Head Light being the obvious first) - Bass Harbor Head Light is located on the very tip of Mount Desert Island.  I got there just before the sunset, as the thunderstorm was moving out. The light was not perfect, there were plenty of tourists and a handful of photogs, though I tried to get away from all of them by planting myself right in the middle of the slippery rocks.  For just a few minutes, the sky glowed and I began shouting like a kid, (in my mind, and then later out loud to stop the surrounding chatter) “Is everyone getting this? Is everyone shooting?” I guess I was trying to tell people that this is the time, right now, for a lasting memory photograph.
