I have been shooting a lot of lighthouses in Maine and Massachusetts lately, and I am big fan of the Cape Neddick Lighthouse in Ogunquit, also known as Nubble Light. I have been to this location three times, and I really like the images that I created using the neutral density filters from LEE. I have the Big Stopper and the Little Stopper now, and I have to say that the latter was a great addition to my kit. It comes in handy when your shooting a sunrise or a subset because the light is changing so quickly that you need flexibility.
Along with the Portland Head Light, Nubble Light is one of the most photographed lighthouses in anew England. Well worth a visit if you are in southern Maine. I have had a chance to meet some local residents, and they say it’s particularly amazing before or after a storm. Another key time to shoot the lighthouse is at Christmas, when the entire thing is covered in holiday lights!
