Shot of the Week – vol 12

Nubble at night

This week’s shot of the week is a throw-back, as weather and time were not exceedingly cooperative this week.

Nubble at Night

 

It’s not a frequent occurrence for me to do night photography, even though it is something that I enjoy, as it’s a thinking photographer’s game.  This shot is from December 2014, when Nubble Light on Cape Neddick, ME, was decorated with lights for the holiday season.

From a position, low on the rocks, I noticed that I could get a nice long reflection of the light on the island, including some on the rocks that were moist from the surf.  In case you wonder, the ocean was flat, as this is a side effect of very long exposures.

Hope you enjoy!
