Porch View - Marshall Point Lighthouse, Port Clyde, Maine

Last week I talked about working the scene and trying to get as many unique views of a subject that you can. The funny thing is that when you think you have photographed it at all possible angles, you see someone else's photo and you realize you missed some. That is why I love shooting with other photographers. Back in April on our Maine scouting trip, Jeff Clow posted a similar composition to this that I had failed to see. The second I saw it, I knew that I would be shooting it the next time I visited Marshall Point Lighthouse. For those of you who think you may have not seen this lighthouse before, you are probably wrong. It was featured in the movie Forest Gump when Forest ended his cross country run. I can just picture a video camera from this vantage point filming the end of his run.
