Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

photo of the week for Tuesday, 2012, January 31
Photographer: Michael Rickard

Professional photographer Michael Rickard got this great shot during some experimentation with long exposures on the coast of Maine. Michael says, "I watched and waited as the photographers kept arriving and claims were staked on the flat rock I was on. We managed to fit three of us on the small acreage of the rock. All of us watched in amazement as the clouds starting building up so much that we almost packed it in. Then at the last moment the sun peaked through a small slice in the clouds that opened up right at the horizon. The sky exploded into color for several minutes so I grabbed a couple of quick exposures like this one." Check him out on Facebook—http://www.facebook.com/MegaPixelMike
