A Sambro Island Field Trip

I've wanted to photograph on Sambro Island for much of my life, having grown up sailing past it numerous times a year.

This field trip was a unique opportunity to visit the oldest standing lighthouse in North America, and certainly was worth the visit. The island was a wonderland of pristine views of the surrounding ocean, and lovely sun-bleached rocks like the above glacial erratic.

Sadly, the island is showing the price of neglect; with no keeper, and only sporadic maintenance, the out buildings on the island are starting to really suffer - like this building below the light proper, which has lost much of its back end.
