Daily Photo Phix: From Nantasket to Minot’s Ledge

20120604-073456.jpg

One Sunday in April, we took a drive to Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts. During the summer season, you’re lucky to find a place to park on a Sunday, but in April, it was wide open, although a few brave souls did brave the chilly surf.

Just south of Hull are the towns of Scituate and Cohasset, and off their shores is Minot’s Ledge Lighthouse, seen here in the distance.

From where we stood at Nantasket, it’s about 8 miles (as the crow flies), to Minot’s Ledge. Yet, thanks to the way a telephoto lens compresses the scene, the lighthouse actually looks much closer. I like the way the islands create “layers” in the scene, and the lighthouse beckons in the distance, much as it’s done since 1860.

Taken with a Nikon D90 DSLR with an 18-200 Nikon lens: f/5.6, 1/1000, 200mm focal length, ISO 200.
