Cape Neddick, York, Maine
From a “down low” and wide-angle perspective, it is not obvious that this iconic lighthouse is located on an island. I chose the composition because it includes some interesting foreground elements and leading lines. Three bracketed exposures were combined in Aurora HDR Pro and further editing was done in Photoshop CC.
Built in 1879, the light got its name from the “nub” of land about 100 yards off of Cape Neddick Point. After automation, the Town of York took over guardianship. It maintains the buildings, including the charming light keeper’s house.
