Photo of the Day (10-21-09)

There are some photographs that are the stuff from which novels are made--or if not a novel, a mighty fine short story--possibly written by Annie Proulx or Alice Monro. This stunning shot taken in Maine by justin fain is one of them. There's a moody quality to the lighting and the colors that immediately drew me into the scene. Although the shot is absent of people, except for the lone boat in the distance, their presence is felt.

The question is, would the story be a romance or a horror story? Would anyone be killed? Is the person who lives here waiting for someone who is lost at sea? Is there a happy ending? Oh, I hope so.

If you have a shot that's captured your imagination, send it our way at Gadling's Flickr Photo Pool to capture ours. It might be chosen as a Photo of the Day.

*I think the lighthouse in the photo is the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, near Portland.
