Bass Head Lighthouse
Photograph - Photography
This historic New England icon is known in downeast Maine as the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. Since 1858, it's been on guard at the entrance of Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay as a faithful beacon for those navigating the Atlantic waters.
The bright red light, now fully powered by electric, originally was lit by whale oil. The setting is purely one of the most idyllic and quintessential on the eastern seaboard and has been an inspiring subject for visitors, artist and professional photographer like myself for decades.
I've photographed this spectacular seascape every time I've been to Acadia National Park. Coming away with a prize winner is never a guarantee. On this one June evening several key factors combined in creating a colorful and stunning fine art print. The rugged and rocky shoreline is such an amazing presence, I had to set up real low and close to the foreground to be sure to include all the character of these gorgeous natural sculptures. The warm pinkish tones in the granite are natural and rather unique to the Maine coast.
Tom is making this tack sharp print available in assorted FineArt print sizes up to 48 x 32" For larger sizes, and also for Metalprints with more custom options please be sure to contact Tom direct!!
