Sunrise Lighthouse Photo Cruise Sept. 11

Mon, 09/06/2021 - 8:30am

    The annual Sunrise Lighthouse Photography cruise aboard the Balmy Days is this coming Saturday, Sept. 11 at 6 a.m.

    This cruise features the opportunity to make your best shots of the area local lighthouses with the best light. Lighthouses in Maine mostly face East and with the low angle of the rising sun in the East the local lights are bathed with some really beautiful light that is perfect for photography.

    Captain Bill Campbell maneuvers his vessel, the Balmy Days, in such a fashion to be able to capture some beautiful look angles of the local lighthouses which include Burnt Island, The Cuckolds, Ram Island and Hendricks Head.

    This cruise is open to all and folks with cell phone cameras are especially encouraged to come and make their best shots of the local lights and scenery.  Local photographer Mike Leonard will be aboard to share photo tips and to help you to make your best shot.

    Tickets are still available online by visiting the Balmy Days Cruises booth on Pier 8 in Boothbay Harbor, website, and by phone at 633-2284.
