Portland Head Lighthouse

I have been in Maine for a few days photographing along US route 1. Maine at this time of year is interesting in that the tourists are mostly gone, its just past the fall foliage season, and many places are beginning to close down for the season. A variety of photo opportunities are still available along the rocky coast of Maine including lighthouses and quiet lobster fishing villages.

Below are a few images captured at the Portland Head Lighthouse. The Portland Head Lighthouse (Light Station) was completed in 1791 to protect ships entering Casco Bay, and has been in continuous operation for over 2 centuries. It is a favorite subject of many photographers, and provides photo ops at both sunrise and sunset with many possibilities for interesting foregrounds.

The first rays of sun after sunrise reach the Portland Head Lighthouse, built in 1791, which protects mariners entering Casco Bay. The lighthouse is located in Fort Williams Park, Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
