Portland Head Light Rocks

Feb 19, 2017 - Lighthouse, Long Exposure, Portland, Rocks, Sunrise - 1 Comments - Standard

What a morning I had yesterday.  Bob Lussier, Mike Tully and I headed out early to shoot a different location in South Portland, ME (images to follow in a future post), and decided to visit Portland Head Light afterwards. Although we arrived past sunrise, the light was still sweet, and allowed us time to explore all […]

Reaching for the Light

Feb 10, 2014 - Lighthouse, Maine, Ocean, Portland - 4 Comments - Standard

Doesn’t it look like these tree branches are reaching toward the lighthouse?  Well even if they aren’t, this is a bit of a different take on this iconic lighthouse.  Portland Head Light has been photographed so many times, it’s hard to find a unique spin on it.  This is my attempt.

Dawn at the Light

Today’s image is another shot of the Spring Point Ledge Light in Portland, Maine.  The long exposure here allowed the water to take on that silky look, but it also had an interesting effect on the light and colors in the sky.  The sun was rising to the right of the lighthouse, and the darker […]

Spring Point Ledge Light

Here is another view of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse with more of the breakwater in the composition.  This is such a beautiful place to be at sunrise, and I can imagine how much the past keepers of the lighthouse must’ve appreciated their view.  Especially once the breakwater was built, and they weren’t as stranded […]

Well I’m pleased to report that my blog and I have decided to get back together again.  About two weeks ago we decided that we perhaps could use some time away from one another.  I had said some things I didn’t mean.  The blog said some things it didn’t mean.  Things were starting to get […]
