While on a photography workshop, we staked our claim early that afternoon to prepare for what would be a beautiful sunset shot that included the famous Bass Harbor Head Light. The Bass Harbor Head Light is located within Acadia National Park in Maine. This historic lighthouse was built in 1858, and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It is a must see if you are visiting the park and if you are planning on taking pictures at sunset, arrive as early as possible. It was a memorable experience for me.
