Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine is one of my favorite spots to photograph the features of the night sky while incorporating an iconic lighthouse as a foreground element. The skies over the Atlantic Ocean in Port Clyde have very little light pollution and offer star gazers a chance to see what they may otherwise be missing. Some of the great aspects for shooting here include the long walkway out to the tower, the rocky outcropping and tidal pools at the base of the tower, and the fantastic "wagon wheel" feature coming from the lighthouse itself, caused by the metal design of the tower cap.
In late August the Milky Way appears as a slight arc in the sky just after sunset (around 8 PM) and quickly becomes vertical before the photogenic core region falls below the horizon around 1 AM. We will be set up & shooting around sunset and through the night for about 4 hours.
