When we arrived in Boston on our way to Maine, we knew one of our first stops was going to be Portland Head Light. In fact, we shot it once at sunset, went back the next morning for sunrise and again on our way back home when it was in immense fog. We certainly got our chances at it, but I think sunrise offered the best opportunity.
Portland Head light is the oldest lighthouse in the state of Maine. It's also probably the most photographed lighthouse in the USA.
This image was made before the sun had risen. If you look closely you can still see several stars in the sky. You can also see another lighthouse way off in the distance. That is Ram Island Ledge Light, which is now a privately owned lighthouse.
I created this image using my Canon 5D III, Tamron 24-70mm Lens and Sirui W-2204 Tripod.
