Kennebec River Range Lights
This set of lights is the Kennebec River Range Lights, formerly called the Doubling Point Range Lights, and at first glance one might think there's a bright spotlight off in the distant woods. At this location on the Kennebec River in Arrowsic these two towers work together to form a range light and as boats round a bend in the river the pilot lines up the beacons to navigate the channel. The beacons for both the front and back towers have a narrow beam that project out to only a small vector and getting both in the same frame was important for the photograph. Lighting such a large area was challenging and I used three dimmed LED lights--one on the rear tower, a second lighting the woods, the third for the front tower, and then supplemented all with a handheld flashlight hitting the seagrass and the house. The blue light in the sky above the house is from bright floodlights at the Bath Iron Works about a mile away.
