Edgartown Light

For today’s post we go back to Martha’s Vineyard once again.  This is Edgartown Light, which I’ve shot countless times before.  One of the great things about this lighthouse is that it’s ok to shoot it countless times because it provides so many angles, compositions, points of view, etc.  You can shoot it tight, or use the many opportunities to create a wide angle shot with a foreground interest.  Or you can try some combination of these or anything else that works for you.  For this particular shot, I chose a mid-range shot using the water and the sky to frame the lighthouse.  The smooth streak in the middle of  the water is the current flowing through from the other side of the jetty.  Although the horizon is smack dab in the middle of the shot, I still think it works.

Camera settings: ISO 200, f/16, 70mm, 15 seconds

    Once again, your refined photographic acumen never fails to please! The Edgartown Lighthouse is indeed a special lighthouse. I was moved when I saw the cobblestones that surround it inscribed with the names of children who have transitioned from this life; it is a wonderful place for a memorial dedicated to the memory of children.

    Thanks again for the great picture!
