Driving up from Boston we (nXnw) were able to visit a couple of light houses along the way. It was unfortunately a rainy day, but I took advantage of it to use my 10-stop filter to add some extra dram to the scenes. Our first stop was the Nubble Lighthouse located on Cape Neddick in York, Maine The lighthouse was put into service in 1879 and is still in use today. It’s on the National Register of Historic places and one of 8 lighthouses in Maine to have a Fresnel lens.
This image was done as a long exposure. I used my Lee Big Stopper (10-Stop ND Filter) to soften the waves coming in along the rocks. With the Fuji, I was able to recover much of the rich color along the hillside next to the light house and create a nice image of the lighthouse even though it was a gray stormy day.
