Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse In Maine
Photograph - Epson Lustre Paper
This lighthouse was built in 1858 to warn mariners of the Bass Harbor Bar and mark the entrance to Bass Harbor. This harbor offers protection from easterly gales and is one of the many picturesque harbors along Maine�s beautiful coastline. This easily accessible light is probably one of the most photographed light in Maine. It ranks right up there with Portland Head for scenic quality. The brick tower casts a red light from a fourth order Fresnel lens. One can only imagine the difficulties that keeper�s faced during foul weather. The bell tower to the left of the lighthouse had to be rung by hand during heavy fog when the automation equipment failed. To be out in the winter weather without having to perform the tedious striking of the bell every so many minutes was probably hard at best, but these dedicated people performed their duties day in and day out.
