THE COASTLINE OF PEMAQUID MAINE is one of the most beautiful. Not only is it home to one of Maine’s historic lighthouses, Pemaquid Light, the area is host to some of the oldest rock formations in our land. Whether sailing along the coast or viewing them on shore, they will take your breath away. Some years ago when I first discovered this spot I was swept by the spectacular meeting of a rough coastline with its onrush of breaking waves and a majestic lighthouse, seeming to bear witness. As a photographer I couldn’t ask for a more dramatic scene. I still remember a man from Minnesota as he sat on a rock looking out, riveted to the spot because he was so affected by what he saw.
However, this was only the beginning. Like many photographers there is a lure that keeps calling me back. People from all over the world make this a must destination, and there are many couples that make their wedding vows here. Is this just another pretty spot or does it hold a meaning for people’s lives that goes beyond the moment and would be good for us to know?
