Well, sorry if you expected flowers, but I do photograph other stuff too! :-)
I captured this image following a photo tour to Maine. I had driven back to Portland, ME to prepare for my trip home and wanted to head back to the Portland Lighthouse for what was shaping up to be a good sunset. It was partly cloudy and I was getting excited as to what I might be able to capture. When I arrived at the lighthouse, it was socked in with fog.
I recovered from my shock and had to switch gears and decide how I would capture the scenario. The fog had actually begun to dissipate some, so I quickly set up my tripod, composed the shot, and waited until I had an angle of the lighthouse light stretching into the fog. I remember the sounds too: the fog horns were intermittently blasting and there was a loud 'sucking' type sound as the ocean churned and the waves hit the rocks. Those were new sounds to me!
I was the only one on the photo tour with a foggy lighthouse shot, because I took the time to go back out to the lighthouse one more time on my own before I headed home. We had plenty of rain and clouds on the trip, but no fog like this.
Next post: more flowers. :-)
