Cape Elizabeth Icon

Portland Head Light, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

No visit to Portland, Maine is complete without a visit to nearby Cape Elizabeth and its iconic lighthouse, the Portland Head Light. While there are numerous lighthouses along Maine's rugged coast, this is one of the largest and arguably the signature lighthouse of Maine. The light is surrounded by a huge park where visitors can picnic and engage in recreational activities. Although I didn't shoot this in soft early morning light (I was actually scouting for the next day), it is still a pretty impressive structure.
