Digital Art - Digital Art / Photography Based Digital Hand-painting
On our drive to an event in New Hampshire a few years ago, we made several tourist-y stops. One of our favorites was the visit to the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine. A glorious warm day in early autumn, the sight of the lighthouse was picture perfect. We were impressed by the kindness of the people there, as well ... one of the groundskeepers even positioned me in just the right spot to capture the best angle and composition.
A lighthouse on this site was requested by local mariners as early as 1807, but a formal proposal in 1837 was refused on the grounds that there were several other lights in the vicinity. Tragically, not 5 years later the bark Isadore wrecked just north of the island ... its ghost and phantom crew are still said to appear. Finally in 1876 Congress appropriated $15,000 for the construction of the Nubble, and the 41-foot cast iron tower, lined in brick, was illuminated for the first time on July 1, of that year.
Fine art purchases of this image will not include a watermark, and if I may make a recommendation ... this image will look its very best on the fine art paper choice of "picture rag."
