# 262 - "Reflections. . ."

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in 

the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” 

   - Ansel Adams

West Quoddy Lighthouse

It was all about the light! I was in Baxter State Park for a moose shoot (camera not gun) and decided to stay overnight in Lubec to catch first light on this magical lighthouse. Mother Nature cooperated with a beautiful sunrise to fill the sky and cast just the right amount of light on the beacon. I did shoot this originally in color but the contrasts, the angles and the sky all screamed monochromatic! 

Thanks to NIK Silver Efex Pro 2, I was able to capture the feel of the moment.

Raising a cold one to Tony, Phil, Joyce, EMO, Joani, and Michelle for their response to "Lite Beer!"
