Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse . Maine . Watercolor . 16" x 12"

... it's all about the rocks.
The lighthouse at Bass Harbor Head is interesting, though access is limited by Coast Guard and Homeland Security fencing.
This 1858 lighthouse has been photographed or painted close to a million times from pretty much this same view point.
The best overall view is probably from a boat on the water. Confined to land, as I... and most everyone else...
the next best look seemes to be down the stepped path...
followed by a hop, skip and several jumps out onto the rocks. And they are some mighty impressive rocks...
with pockets of blood red algae interspersed in little tidal pools...
