1. Sunset is one of the best times to photograph "Nubble" Light, and especially after a storm has cleared, resulting in big splashes on the rocks. The cormorant, flying above, is a common bird along the New England seacoast.
2. A little dusting of snow and puffy clouds made this winter afternoon scene a must-capture.
3. During the holiday season, the "Nubble" (actual name "Cape Neddick Light"), sports a lighted outline of electric bulbs. This shot was taken on a 10-degree morning, and it is not often that one sees a dawn sky this colorful at this spot. While flawed by the severely underexposed rocks, I posted it because the main attention is drawn to the lighthouse and the beautiful sky.
4. Another sunset shot, but not the typical view. Round, moss-covered rocks offer a sharp contrast to the lighter and more jagged rocks of the cliff, as the last rays of the setting sun illuminate the lighthouse and adjacent buildings. This picture was taken in the early spring.
I use a circular polarizer on days like this. It tends to make the colors more vivid at the time of capture.
All were shot with a Nikon D80 with a Nikkor 18-200mm AF VR lens. I used Manual program and spot focusing.
Hope you like these pictures. More pictures of Nubble and other New England lighthouses can be found on my site:
