12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Rock formation at Pemaquid

The lighthouse, and this view of it, are quite well known. I was initially disappointed by the fog rather than sunshine, but in the end found it gave a more realistic view of why a lighthouse was needed at this location to warn ships away from the massive rocks below. The grey sky actually emphasized the clors of the rocks
