You can’t visit the lighthouses of Maine without hearing stories about the “the lighthouse keepers.” Even though these same lighthouses are powered by automated lights today, tales of “the keeper’s” mission to always keep the light burning, in spite the weather, are undeniably intriguing. The day I captured this image the rain had scattered the tourists and I stood there in the cold rain alone, it gave me a moment to ponder what it must have been like to be a lighthouse keeper. Walking the path out to the light alone to keep the light glowing. It’s no wonder the mission of the keepers and the lighthouse themselves have become such a powerful symbol.
