Nubble Lighthouse 2

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 7 October 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

As I said yesterday, this lighthouse is on an island. Today I show you the only way to get to the lighthouse - via a cable car, literally, a small "car" that runs across on a wire.
For additional views of this lighthouse go to my other blog here
I value your comments.

SONY NEX-C3 1/160 second F/5.6 ISO 200 55 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

Oh dear, that cable car does not look like a very safe way to cross.

Somehow it doesn't look very safe, but I think I would go there anyway because the place looks very interesting. :)

Whao ... not very easy the access to the lighthouse, this is not my preferred means of transport. A very beautiful image interesting with the side anecdotally of this transport.
I love, a great photo.

In windy weather that's certainly an exciting way to go. And when that kind of a place is no wind.

Those beautiful and rugged rocks of Maine ... and the ingenuity of its people ... a great shot.

No thanks, looks too dangerous, wonder if they will let you swim across or let you take
your chances on the rocks and water. Superb image !~

I grew up in Portsmouth, NH, a stones throw from York. Thanks for the nostalgic look at my old stomping grounds.
