Monhegan Dory

Monhegan Dory

Monhegan Island is a few miles off the Maine Coast south of Port Clyde. I'd been invited by a friend to join him at his rented cottage for the night and took the afternoon ferry. As night fell, the clear skies turned cloudy though the radar indicated it might clear early in the morning. I set the alarm for 1am and awoke to a patch of clear skies. This photograph of the dory does not indicate any clearing hence the stars are all but absent. Directly above us was millions of stars but the horizon behind the lighthouse was obscured. You can't always rely on the weather with this project and since I was only on the island for one night, I made the best of it. We were able to capture a couple of other star-filled shots before the clouds completely filled the sky shutting us down for the night.
