  1. I like all three…the top for catching the stars…the middle for the emphasis on the church and the candle because the Christmas lights came out awesome which only focuses your attention even more on the candle.

    1. Thank you! Yes it is. In fact the annual lighting was this weekend, which I avoided at all costs. The crowds are insane. From frustrating experience, if you’d like to capture a photo similar to this I highly recommend you go either very, very early in the morning, or very, very, very late at night. I lost count of the number of ruined exposures caused by people pulling in and illuminating the lighthouse with their car headlights. If I go again this year I think it will be very early. I shot this at around 10 p.m. and there were just too many cars. I usually have most places to myself in the hours leading up to sunrise though.

  2. hey Jeff, i thought i left a comment yesterday to say that i couldn’t see these images. at least that was my intent. now i can’t see the comment but i do see the images, so all is well! so striking, all of them. thanks for sharing. 🙂
