Whaleback Lighthouse

A little lighthouse flavor to get your weekend started off right….

This shot was taken from a harbor cruise on The Heritage on a glorious summer afternoon.  It was the first time I was able to get up close and personal with Whaleback Light with my camera….gorgeous lighting.  I’m looking forward to my next visit.

This lighthouse was put up for auction by the Coast Guard not long ago, and is now owned and maintained by the American Lighthouse Foundation based out of Rockland, Maine (same folks who operate the Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse).

I also want to take a moment to remember all those whose lives were lost in the tragedy of 9/11/01.  Hard to believe it was nine years ago today.

Setting Out

This has been an awesome weekend, spent with family (and soon to be family!) in some glorious weather here on the seacoast.  On Saturday night my fiance and I decided to treat our parents to a harbor cruise out on the Heritage for the evening before grabbing dinner in town.  It was a gorgeous evening filled with some quality evening light and some beautiful coastal shots.  There’s not much in the world like taking a summer cruise up the Piscataqua.  Here’s a sampling of what we saw on the trip…(no HDRs because of the moving platform of the boat…so nothing too eye-popping, but lovely shots nonetheless).
