A CRITICAL PHOTOGRAPHY LESSON

When you spot something that catches your eye, make sure you invest the time to see the subject from every possible perspective.  One of the most important aspects you are seeking is an interesting frame.  Had I simply shot this lighthouse from where everyone else was standing, I would have missed this old tree that was providing a perfect frame for my image, as well as some very interesting shading effects in the foreground.  Removing the tree, even though you have a beautiful blue sky, drastically lessens the interest of this image.

Along the upper coastal of Washington State, you’ll find the Grays Harbor Lighthouse.  At 107 feet, Grays Harbor Lighthouse, dedicated in 1898, is the tallest lighthouse in Washington and the third tallest on the West Coast.  It marks the entrance to Grays Harbor, which is one of Washington’s few outer-coast harbors.
