This little lighthouse stands guard on the Kennebec River. It was established in 1898, 15 years after the founding of the Bath Iron Works, a major shipbuilder located upriver.
My riding buddy on the photography tour is standing on the light’s boardwalk, framing up a shot toward the shoreline and providing a sense of scale. He is also demonstrating that it is worthwhile to turn around from the main subject matter in an area. There could be a great scene behind you too!
