This is the base of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in Portland, Maine.  As shown here and here, this type of lighthouse is sometimes called a spark plug design, and this one is a wonderful example of this style.  Its location on the breakwater makes access easy, and provides so many different ways to shoot it.  After I finished with the more iconic shots of the structure, I started to look for unique angles and compositions.  This was probably my favorite.

    I like this perspective, Steven. Sort of peeking around the base at the sun. Nice work!

    I agree with everyone else, Steven. I especially like the bold composition and that everything draws the eye to the sun. Really great image!
