Storm at Nubble Lighthouse-NEW FINE ART POSTERS
May 5, 2009 by Donald Verger
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!
