You may have heard of the Lighthouse Depot up in Maine, a prestigious gift shop sporting the largest variety of lighthouse gifts and high-quality merchandise from all around the globe. And now, Donald Verger, is honored to be selling some of his art in this store.

Lighthouses are such a strong, solid, symbol of coastal history and many people love that beauty and symbolism these guardians offer. Often, families and enthusiasts will plan vacations to visit several lighthouses, or just a favorite one which they visit regularly. In 1992, this group began a monthly publication of Lighthouse Digest with 34 paid subscribers, and shortly after, opened their store in Wells. The store has grown over time, two whole floors full of lighthouse gifts, representing many states and 20 countries. And better still… a percentage of all sales goes to various lighthouse preservation groups around the country.

Their website offers hundreds of lighthouse tales, an online catalog, as well as links to other lighthouse sites. Lighthouse lovers can’t miss this!

Donald Verger was on his way to Manchester when he heard that up in Acadia, Maine there would be a strong autumn storm with winds whipping up to 50mph. He immediately turned around and made his way to Acadia where the bad weather would provide the opportunity for some beautiful pictures. Now, he’s added this image of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse into the series of fine art posters. This image was taken in the morning, though it was to be the middle of the storm, a calm morning can be seen as the clouds move in.

Donald Verger is proud to announce the first in a series of fine art posters, selected from his most loved and collected images. The first in the series, titled “Storm at Nubble Lighthouse”, is a unique image taken of an incredible wave crashing behind the Nubble Lighthouse on April 16th, 2007, during the Patriot’s Day Storm.

"Storm at Nubble Lighthouse", the first in a series of fine art posters by photographer Donald Verger

 

The nor’easter that bombarded the coast that day was a storm with unmatched strength, New England hadn’t seen anything like it for years. Peak winds in Portland, ME were measured at 59mph, with some of the highest waves measured just above 30′. The damage sustained by the Nubble Lighthouse in the storm was estimated at $1 million.

“The extent of coastal damage was being compared to destructive nor’easters in 1987 and 1991. Nor’easters blow directly at the Maine coast, scouring the shore and pounding seawalls and bluffs with great force. This week’s nor’easter packed especially strong winds and coincided with tides that were already elevated by 2 feet or more.”

 Portland Press Herald

Verger made it to the lighthouse that day, taking thousands of pictures of the raging waves and churning muddy ocean. “This was something extrordinary I don’t expect to see again in my lifetime,” Verger explained while describing the featured image.

The posters are now available to purchase, the first 100 sold will be signed by Donald Verger. Wholesale prices are available for purchases of 10 or more posters. Look for more fine art posters by Donald Verger available soon!
