Love it? Absolutely!!! I have not been to Pemaquid when the sun was right to shoot from this perspective...but in about 3 weeks, I will be there to try again...but even then, I am sure that I won't be able to shoot anything like this beauty. Thanks for thinking of me...very much appreciated. What a wonderful the POV...absolutely outstanding work. Into my favorites gallery...!!! #8857340

8/23/10, DD. Dedicated to Jack Ryan, because I am sure this is one lighthouse photo that he will not have in his collection! This is Pemaquid from the other side- the shore down from the little restaurant. I had a cloud in another photo that I thought was shaped like a funnel cloud, so I inverted colors and shaped it into a tornado. I will post that photo as a "before". I also found lightning brush to use in PS. I also changed the sky, since it was sunny at the time and darkened the whole scene.
