Pemaquid Point at Sunset

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is a popular spot for photographers at sunset. During a recent visit, we all took turns capturing the lighthouse in the reflection.  My best shot was this cell phone image.  Makes me wonder why I bother with the regular camera!

Here is a far older image of the same tower taken circa 1859 before the two fog signals were added.  The configuration of the tower and keeper’s dwelling is remarkably similar. The current tower dates to 1835.  It replaced an earlier tower built by Jeremiah Berry in 1827.
