Many of the lighthouses on the coast of Maine sit offshore, at the eastern tip of remote islands. A dramatic beauty can be seen in these structures and their rugged environments. For this newsletter, I selected lighthouses that are accessible by car or that can be photographed with a telephoto lens from the mainland. There are detailed directions to 18 of the most photogenic spots from Kittery to Lubec–every one is unique. Included are tips on the best time of day to arrive.
For a real adventure, combine these lighthouses with an autumn color visit in mid-October and include a visit to an offshore island. Issue #116 - Lighthouses on the Coast of Maine wraps up with a short list of my favorite five Maine lighthouses.
