Glow - Portland Head Light, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

This year has been a terrific one for me as far as photography trips. I have been to Maine, Banff and Moab so far. The only problem with having so many trips is there is a backlog of photos that I simply haven't looked at. That's a good problem to have and I am not complaining. I finally took a quick look through my Maine photos and this photo jumped out to me to be edited and posted. I have always loved this lighthouse on the rugged Maine coast and, I suspect that it is the most visited and photographed one in a state that has more than sixty. It's location is actually in a ninety-acre town-owned park (Fort Williams Park) that attracts locals and tourists alike. My favorite time to shoot the light is at sunrise, as the park is usually deserted. It is also the time of day when the sun hits the rocks surrounding the light and they start to glow.
