Portland Head Light and Summer Flowers by 

Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse located on the rocky coast of Maine (USA) in Cape Elizabeth, southeast of the city of Portland.

This is one of my favorite lighthouses to visit when I am in Maine.

Construction began in 1787 and was completed in early 1791. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in April 1973. NRHP Reference #: 73000121

(Canon 7D, ISO 200, F8, 1/200 sec, 24.00 mm, circular polarizer)

    Wonderful image Mark. Excellent colors and framing.

  • Thanks, it is a beautiful location. I had to hold my camera over a chain link fence to get this angle. Fortunately I have live view to help compose the shot.

  • Thanks Lori. I followed your example and started using a polarizer. It really helps the colors stand out.

    Hi Mark I agre with the first comment 100%.
    Wonderful image. Excellent colors and framing. Instant Fav,

  • Thanks Hans. It took a bit of positioning to get this shot due to a chain link fence. I had to hang my camera over the fence and try to look at the display in bright sunlight. Fortunately everything worked out.
