The Pemaquid Poingt lighthouse, near Damariscotta, Maine, is one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the east coast. It was established in 1827 and remains an active aid to navigation. The 38 foot tower stands high on the rocks, almost 80 feet above sea level…and can be seen up to 15 miles off shore.

I am a retired high school English teacher living in northeast Ohio with a particular interest in photographing lighthouses. As I write this, I have photographed 184 lighthouses…at least one on each of the Great Lakes plus numerous Atlantic Coast lights from Maine to North Carolina. My primary camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi…and I use either a Canon Powershot G12 or a Canon Powershot SX120 as backup.
