Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is another quintessential Maine lighthouse. Lighthouse operation at this location began in 1827. The lighthouse, being located on Pemaquid Point, protects mariners entering Musgongus Bay (east) and Johns Bay (west).

Among the outstanding features of this location are the metamorphic rock formations that run up from the water to the lighthouse. They are a mixture of granite, gneiss, and quartz woven in intricate layers, that can be used to draw strong lines in photo compositions. I visited the lighthouse in the morning to catch the morning twilight and sunrise.

Below are a few images captured at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.
