Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

Sunset casts a warm glow over the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse as it sits perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the rocky granite shores of Acadia National Park’s Mount Desert Island in Maine. The lighthouse dates to 1855 and is currently the private residence of a local Coast Guard employee. We didn’t abandon our spot to capture this beautiful sunset shot until after four hours when the tide rose around our ankles.

We loved our travels up the Maine coastline, munching on lobster rolls, eating wild blueberry pie, and particularly hiking around Acadia National Park. With the combination of mountain vistas and rugged coast, the scenery is spectacular. Our scenic photo print of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is our first print in our Maine series, but check back often as we will be adding more Maine photography soon.
