Photo of the Day: Isle au Haut Lighthouse, Maine

I took this photo during my one and only visit to Isle au Haut -- I believe it was June 1996. I've photographed the lighthouse from the water a couple of times since then, but I haven't been back on the island.

The keeper's house at this lighthouse was run as a bed & breakfast inn from the late 1980s until recently by Jeff and Judi Burke. The inn has closed, but you can rent the keeper's house or an adjacent building by the week; see

The author Linda Greenlaw spent summers here as a kid. You can read about it in her book, The Lobster Chronicles.
