Since 1876, the 40 foot lighthouse at Nobska Point has guided mariners into the tricky passage of Woods Hole on their way from Martha's Vineyard Sound to Buzzard's Bay. The strait separates the southernmost point of Cape Cod from the Elizabeth Islands.
On this particular day, we were returning from a day on Nantucket on the fast ferry to New Bedford with this magnificent sky following us the whole way. The shot was a bit challenging, given the ocean wind, the forty miles-per-hour speed of the ferry, and the rocking of the sea.
The reward was not so much a nice image of the lighthouse from the water, but a deeper story of the relationship of sailors and the sea, with a hint of rough weather and the comfort of a safe harbor ahead.
