I love all the photos, but the last one is definitely my favorite. The moon on top, the reflection on the water and the woman doing yoga make for a fabulous composition. You hit it out of the park on that on.

Do you really live amongst such beauty? I think I could live there.
I am drawn to New England.

And I must try yoga by moonlight - don't think I will in our current temperatures though.

Your photos are all exquisite, I think the first is my favourite.

I have hundreds of photos of Nubble Light since we go there at least once a year every year. None of them are as beautiful as yours. Yours are exquisite!

And Nubble holds special meaning for me now since it is where we found Percy!
