As sunsets earlier and earlier each day, it becomes more important to strategize when heading out for a shoot. I was running out of time way too quickly after going out for a run with the Mrs., but still couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some of the incredible late day light. My first thought was to head to Great Island Common for a close-up of Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse. With the 100mm-400mm lens, it would be a treat to have the option to shoot a bit closer. I decided to use a long exposure to really bring out the richness of the coastal air and the movement in the Atlantic Ocean. I’m very pleased with the shot – a serene capture of a beautiful seacoast landmark.
