About an hour north of Boston is Cape Ann and the busy fishing town of Gloucester. This is both the setting and where the filming took place of the George Clooney film 'A Perfect Storm' which is based on the true story of the Andrea Gail. Still in Massachusetts ...just, it is also the home of 2 other lighthouses which are both on Thacher Island at the entrance to the harbour.

Many thanks for looking and as always any advice is always welcome.

The low POV makes the causeway such a dramatic lead in to the shot of the lighthouse, Gill.

Excellent use of the causeway, Gill, a lead-in and texture. A lovely balanced composition with lots of detail held within.

A very beautiful composition Gill, full of many wonderful ingredients, blended and mixed, then cooked to perfection.

An excellent composition and lead in Gill, it looks a lot more picturesque place than the Gloucester i am familiar with
