Lighthouse during holidays

December 13, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's that time of the year. Even lighthouses get decked out in spirit of the season. The Concord Point lighthouse at Havre de Grace, MD has a red ribbon with a wreath around it. One can see several photographers on the left side under their umbrellas . The photo was taken on a rainy December evening. I was using a protective clear plastic rain sleeve (Op/Tech USA) for my camera and lens and also covering myself and my photo gear with a small umbrella, just to be sure. The rain sleeve works fairly well under inclement weather conditions and is cheap. One could also improvise and use a plastic bag but it wouldn't be as convenient. I am becoming more comfortable shooting in the rain.  The first time that I've used the rain sleeve was last year during a storm in Maine and both I and my gear survived. The second image is of the same lighthouse taken several months earlier in the spring at sunrise. Cheers!
