The Pemaquid Lighthouse in Maine is one of the most beautiful lighthouses on the American coast. The lighthouse is situated on the rocky finger of Pemaquid Point near New Harbor, Maine. The light structure is not a tall structure such as our coastal lighthouses at Hatteras, Currituck, Bodie or Cape Lookout. However, the rocks, trees and cluster of buildings give it a distinctive charm. Inside the building, you will find a very interesting museum devoted to lobstering.
This lighthouse has been painted by many famous artists. I chose to back away from the light to show its soaring position above the rocks and ocean.
