Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

Andy | Saturday, February 02, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

Due to the lousy weather that's keeping me indoors I have had to dig into my photos from last summer. Located in the State Maine, USA Pemaquid Point Light was built in 1827. The station sits on a sloping, rocky promontory with dramatic ridges left by the pounding sea. The tower's original Fresnel lens is still in use. The keeper's house now hosts a Fishermen's Museum. It exhibits equipment, photos and artifacts from the fishing and lobstering industries as well as the lighthouse service.

  1. Nice lighthouse, But isn't it possible for you to capture the lousy weather conditions in the neighbor of your house to let us oversea visitors enjoying the bad weather conditions.
