A birds' eye view slideshow of our man-made wonders

Deer Isle Lighthouse Weekend, held September 14 through 16, gave lighthouse lovers and other visitors a chance to view eight area light houses by land, sea and air, but it was the aerial view that showcased the lighthouses surrounded by their local landscape—a dramatic contrast to the up-close-and-personal visit up the lighthouse steps. Photos include lighthouses and various views of Deer Isle and Stonington. Photos were taken by Anne Berleant, flying aboard Penobscot Island Air.
