Nubble Light

You might remember my two previous posts with Nubble Light, you can see them under the Maine/York category. For this one I was trying to get very low and close to the water and try to get reflection of the Nubble Light in this little water puddle. The angles did not work at all and I could not get it into the view. Also I had to be very careful walking on this rock, it was very slippery and I did not want to crash into the water.

    1. probably not if time is not an issue. we spent there only about 30 minutes, driving up the coast to Portland, had to move on and see if any other cool spots were around

  1. This is a lovely picture. Reading your blog, I have started experimenting with HDR. I have a Nikon D7000 with the standard 18-105 lens but again from reading you blog I now have a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 10-24mm lens in my ‘saved for later’ on Amazon. I’m saving hard. Your pictures are inspirational and your tips are great, especially for someone starting out in photography as I am. Thank you.

    1. good luck and stop for stopping by. I hear that D7000 is a great camera and that lens is good too, it is almost as wide as 14-24 (or 10-24) but can zoom into far away as well.

  2. Hi,
    It does look like a bit of a dangerous spot, I know how slippery rocks can get along the open water, but the photo is magnificent. The lighthouse and living quarters look unreal sitting there with nothing else around so isolated, very good capture.

    1. Someone commented back on one of the previous images that during lowest point of the low tide you can almost walk across to it. this was a low tide, but not that low.

    1. hehe, it is a bit cold, it was taken last year in early April in Maine, but if you had a wet suite then it could be done. We were watching surfers up the coast on the same day while eating some lobster rolls – tasty food

  3. Spent many summers in York Beach, Dimitrii, and loved photographing Nubble Light. You’ve done a masterful job! This is a gorgeous composition and lighting. Thank you for bringing back great memories of sitting on those rocks!

  4. I am really appreciating how HDR can be so visually powerful. This is a fantastic picture. As you said, you’ll just to go back out there for another try at getting that reflection. I think you had a beautiful day, with great cloud formation. Worth the effort to get to such i difficult spot. Wonderful!

    1. thanks, it is three step process – shoot, make HDR via photomatix and then do final clean up via CS5 – check my HDR 101, I step thorugh my basic workflow.

  5. First thing that pops into my mind here is “The ghost and Mrs. Muir” (I think that was the ladies name)…. it was a cool movie. I must be getting old. The next thing I see is a marvelous photograph. Great shot!.

      1. You should watch the original movie from the 1940’s (?). You will love it. It is a very original and creative movie, well worth watching. I’m not sure if I spelled the ladies name correctly. If not, I know it’s close.

  6. I love the angle you took this from. The perspective makes the photo not just beautiful, but amazing.

  7. The Maine coast is one of the very few things I miss about New England. Growing up on the southern NE coast, subsistence fishing – living now in high desert country, I’m dry for the first time in my life. 🙂

  8. Amazingly beautiful pictures you got there Dimitri, I get very inspired! I see that in my case I need to get out where it is “slippery” to get the better angel! 🙂 I need to practice more!

    1. thanks!, yes, I always try to remind myself to step away from where everyone takes their photos (after taking them as well :-)) and see if there are any other interesting angles on the same subject. sometimes it can be done sometimes not, but the radar is always on for it 😉

  9. I LOVE Nubbles Point and go there at least once a year. I have tons of photos but I must say mine do not look as good as yours. Fantastic!
