Bear Island Lighthouse Images

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherAlthough, you can get some good image captures from places like Manset in Southwest Harbor, you will need a good telephone to do it. The best is from a boat and there just happens to be some boat rental companies in Southwest Harbor. Check the activities section for information.

This is a gorgeous setting on the southern side of Mount Desert Island which is also at the opening to Somes Sound which goes to the North up-through the central part of Mount Desert Island. Having a captain to manage the boat while you are shooting images is certainly the way-to-go. Be sure to use a shutter speed that is fast enough to compensate for the motion-of-the-ocean!
