 Photo by Billy Spicer. Taken on July 4th. I stood looking at the lighthouse. I noticed the trees formed an almost perfect frame around the lighthouse and the small shack besides it. Combined with the gradient caused by the sunlight I had thanked God that I had brought my FujiFilm with me that day.
