A shot from our trip to Nantucket in August 2011. The guidebook advertised this lighthouse as perched precariously on the cliff edge. ‘Photo op!’, thought I and dragged the family out there only to find that it had been moved! It is now situated in some fairly uninspiring and very safe scrub. At least the sky was interesting enough to make it worth converting this shot to black and white, pushing the blues towards black and the vegetation towards white to create a pseudo-infrared effect.
Loving the dramatic sky. The lighthouse leads the eyes up to the sky beautifully.
Thanks, Jain. How much nicer it would have been with some crashing surf!
How tacky to go and move the lighthouse! Still you did a good job of making it appear “authentic” as a lighthouse ought to be.
Thanks. I tried very hard 😉
Darn! The photo does have a bit of the eerie IR feel. I like it.
Thanks, Sid. I am tempted to have my old 400D converted to infrared. I keep dithering…
Thank you 🙂
Lovely, Rachael, and such great texture – from the vegetation to those clouds!
Thanks, Tricia. Perhaps it was worth the trip after all.
