I posted another shot of the portland head light awhile back. I went back this weekend and got a much different shot. Very very foggy . . . almost too much since some shots you couldn't see anything but the light itself. I thought this one was okay though.

thanks for looking.

I really like this! I've been up there, but I can't think of how you got down to where this was taken.

there's a trail that leads down to this side of the light. Not positive that I was supposed to go down there, but, I didn't see anything that said that I wasn't. Anyway, it looked a bit too inviting not to go.

thanks for your comment.

Nice shot, Ryan. I've never seen that perspective before. You get high marks for ingenuity.

A great, fresh perspective. I never knew you could get down to the lower rocks

thank you all for the comments. I'm glad to find a relatively fresh perspective on such a frequently photographed lighthouse.

Ryan,

Isn't that the perspective from across the rock beach (up near the old fort?)
I was there several weeks ago, and I think I recognize the point of view...

Great shot - love the mystery of it.

Wow, impressive shot - even got the light shinning in your direction. Did it take many tries to get the tower light just right?

I'm not sure where the old fort is. this is from the beach which is accessed from a trail to the left of the lighthouse.

yeah, it took a few tries before I figured out how long it took the light to come back around. i was also hoping that I'd be able to pick up the beam of light shining through the fog, but, it didn't come through on this capture.

thanks,

ryan
