Point Amour Lighthouse







Point Amour Lighthouse

I've shared photos of Point Amour Lighthouse a few times since my visit in 2004 but today I have tried to choose photos that I didn't share previously. When photographing a lighthouse I shoot wide shots on my approach and departure. Then I walk around the lighthouse looking for different angles, windows, doors, and anything else that attracts my attention. I made 80 photos of the lighthouse during the 38 minutes I spent there.

Point Amour Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Atlantic Canada and the second tallest in Canada so it is quite big. I used a wide angle lens for most images then switched to a 15 mm fisheye lens to make interesting views. The third photo was taken with that lens and you will notice that lines are curved by the extreme wide angle.
