Bass Harbor Lighthouse Acadia National Park

Aug 30, 2011 | Lighthouses

This is Bass Harbor Lighthouse located at the southern tip of Acadia National Park in Maine. I almost left this lighthouse as soon as I got there. At first I was disappointed because there was zero vantage point and a ton of tourists. But after exploring the area I found an unmarked path in the back of the parking lot. This trail lead to the back of the Bass Harbor Lighthouse where there was clear view of sunset. From this angle I had a much better photographic composition. Thank goodness because I drove three hours to see this lighthouse. Not like it’s a bad drive but everyday counts when your on the road shooting.
