A shot of Ned’s Point Lighthouse today to cap off my short visit to Mattapoisett, MA this weekend. It sits on the north entrance to Mattapoisett Harbor where it has kept watch since around 1857. At 39 feet high, it is definitely not the most majestic lighthouses in New England, but it is picturesque nonetheless.
You can read about the history of Ned’s here.
The image itself was captured around 2:00 in the afternoon. The low winter sun cast a pretty long shadow, so I framed the image to catch the sun through the lantern room of the lighthouse and stopped down the aperture to around f16 to get a nice starburst. The image was processed in Black and White using Nik Silver Efex Pro. I applied a red filter to darken the sky.
I want to thank my good friend Fran, wife Katie and, of course his daughter Rylie for once again putting up with me! It was great to catch up. Can’t wit for the next visit!
