Old Scituate Lighthouse in Scituate,
Mass provides a beacon of light for those who don't want to travel all
the way to Maine or over the bridge to Cape Cod for a lighthouse scene
Most convenient for those living in the metrowest and south of Boston
suburbs, Scituate Lighthouse's early 1800s classic lighthouse
structure, juxtaposed with sunup, yields a most memorable scene.
Below, we see the foundation for what's to come with a slightly purple
sky followed lower to the ground with some yellow and orange tones.
Notice, also, how the light reflects off the lighthouse keeper's home...
The expanse of the ocean sets the tone for an unobstructed full
spectrum sunrise on clear days which, in turn, shines its light around
the lighthouse. For first-time visitors to New England, this type of
scene presents a wonderful introduction to the beauty of coastal New
England. For repeat travelers or locals, it's just a reaffirmation of
the area's overwhelmingly idyllic presence.
The picture below illustrates the sun's progression across the area and a perfect setting to renew and revitalize...
Those who find it difficult,, however, to wake up early to catch an Old Scituate
Lighthouse sunrise should not feel badly as sunsets can be spectacular,
Either way, make sure to include Scituate Lighthouse in your travel plans at
the beginning of the day or before the sun goes down. It's one of those
simple joys that can only be experienced live on location to fully
appreciate its mighty magnificence.
And here we go, the moment you have been waiting for as the sun fully encompasses the lighthouse...
Old Scituate Lighthouse is located at 100 Lighthouse Rd in Scituate, MA.
