At Night Under the Full Moon at Nubble Light
After the full moon of 11/25/15 was already quite high in the night sky, I went to Sohier Park, York, ME, home of Nubble Light, to see what I could shoot. There was almost nobody there, so I hoped it would not bother anyone if I used a big spot light to cast extra illumination on the lighthouse - car headlights don't reach up far enough. So sweeping my Ryobi 2800 18V spot back 'n' forth over the scene, here's one of the results. This exposure is 30 seconds long, ISO 200, f/6.3 at 27mm; some brightening/contrast applied to the final image. Canon T6i.
A couple interesting things: (1) you can see the shadow of the tower created by that very bright full moon; the shadow comes directly towards our viewing point and "ends" right at that hose that leads down the rocks (near that blocky white thing). The moon is the source of that dazzling light off the water. (2) One of my favorite things, the mysterious Boon Island Light is visible on the horizon at the far right. Boon is about 6 1.2 miles from this vantage.
