2020—Serenity

There is something serene and calming when water is perfectly still. In this view of The Bug Light, as the Portland Breakwater Lighthouse in Maine is affectionately known, the surrounding water, rendered silky and smooth by using a three and a half minute exposure, shows off the diminutive structure to elegant effect with the lovely orange glow of sunrise as a backdrop. The 145 year old lighthouse is quite special since it is the only one of its kind in the world and it was designed by architect Thomas Ustick Walter, who also designed the U.S. Capitol dome.
