Captured in: Cape Elizabeth, ME

 

Seen here is an late afternoon capture of what is probably my favorite East Coast lighthouse -- the Portland Head Light.

 

This image was taken from the cliffs overlooking Portland Harbor in early September. The Portland light was constructed back in 1791, and is the oldest light in Maine.

Seen here is an early morning capture of one of my (new) favorite lighthouses -- the Portland Head Light. This image was taken from the cliffs overlooking Portland Harbor shortly after sunrise. The Portland light was constructed back in 1791, and is the oldest light in Maine.

 

This is the fifth in a series of images from my recent trip (w/ First Light Photography's Bill Rudock) to the New England coast.

Fort Williams Park, Cape Elizabeth, Portland Maine.

This tree is only 6' tall! I got on the ground and shot this through an opening in the foliage around noontime on a clear day. I'd suggest going earlier or later if you can. I didn't have a choice.

The day before storm Dennis and a little visit down to Portland the capture some crashing waves but it was the long exposure that got my attention!

Pictured here is an late afternoon capture of what is one of my favorite East Coast lighthouse -- the Portland Head Light.

 

The Portland Head Light was constructed back in 1791, making it the oldest lighthouse in Maine. The light sits atop some rocky cliffs at the head of Portland Harbor, and is still in use today.

Had a great day out in Portland Bill yesterday and the light was just perfect in every way. Made very good use of my K5 with a circular Polerizing filter

Portland Lighthouse Dorset....

Just back from a weekend in Dorset where I visited Portland Bill for the first time. I only had an hour there but I could certainly spend a lot longer, there is something to shoot every way you turn.

Portland Bill is the largest or the lighthouses on Portland Bill standing 41m. Red and white lighthouses are my favorite lighthouses because they are so distict.

I didn't think I was going to manage any photos on this afternoon. I sat waiting in the car in torrential rain and the car shaking from the wind! Eventually it did clear though and the wind and high tide made for some interesting waves. So much spray though! This was taken on the day prior to my last Portland photo. Thanks for viewing.

Portland Bill long exposure

Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, ME, photographed 10-13-2019 and processed 02-25-20.

It was extremely windy on this trip to Portland, with 40-50mph winds. There was so much spray that it was a case of continually wiping the filter, waiting for what looked like a good wave and then quickly taking a shot! The filter was covered in spray again within seconds. Was a fun and rewarding visit though. This is taken with my back to the Pulpit Rock, for protection from the wind and for safety.

The most photographed lighthouse in the United States. You can see why, so picturesque. So, mine is not the prettiest nor one of a few .. but it is my encounter on this beautiful night along with my own glorious sunset view. :)

 

Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The light station sits on a head of land at the entrance of the primary shipping channel into Portland Harbor, which is within Casco Bay in the Gulf of Maine. Completed in 1791, it is the oldest lighthouse in the state of Maine. The light station is automated, and the tower, beacon, and foghorn are maintained by the United States Coast Guard, while the former lighthouse keepers' house is a maritime museum within Fort Williams Park.

Portland Lighthouse is one of Britains most iconic lighthouses and always try to get at least one shot of it when I visit the area, It's certainly one of my favourites.

 

As we were shooting Pulpit Rock a rain shower came over and for a brief moment, there was a hint of a rainbow. It didn't last long as the sun was soon hidden behind the clouds but I did manage to get a shot of it as it appeared over the lighthouse.

Portland Maine. It's said that this is the most photographed lighthouse in America. If it is, I can understand why

This is another image form the 2020 Portland Winter Light Festival, on the OMSI side of the river. These trees were w real hit. They are captivating, and the colors draw you in. But here is the rub, LED lights don't star on low apertures like incandescent bulbs do. This is a real let down. I am sure there are smarter people than me that could explain in detail why the blue wont shoot and why LEDs don't star. I tell you what, its really dragging down my Christmas images.

 

I do have to admit though, it does push me to shoot better images. In a way. Normally I would set up the tripod and crank it F16, capture a stared set of lights and call it a day. Now, without that tool in my tool chest I have to more creative with the composition to create the wow and depth.

 

Let me know what you think.

 

Oh, this art piece is called Twinkle Trees by Joshua Salas and James Overstreet.

From lovely Portland, Oregon. Walking around in the city, I encountered several old perimeter walls that had been preserved after the buildings had been taken down. They were mostly quite interesting–with textures, colors, decorations and windows that added to the urban landscapes. This is a detail of one of them.

I've been so fascinated with wintertime at the ocean since I've moved to Maine. It's such an adventure to me. Off-season is the best!

 

First stop on my trip away this week was Portland Bill Lighthouse.

 

I first visited here back in October, but the weather then wasn't quite what I was after, the total blue sky didn't really give the place much drama. Today though was a different story, it was quite windy and the rain I'd left behind in Devon was slowly making its way East. The clouds were a lot more dramatic and the wind gave some great movement to the waves, which is what I wanted on my first trip. I only had a short while here so only managed to get one or two shots before I headed off to Poole.

Portland Castle is an artillery fort constructed by Henry VIII on the Isle of Portland, Dorset, between 1539 and 1541. It formed part of the King's Device programme to protect against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire, and defended the Portland Roads anchorage. The fan-shaped castle was built from Portland stone, with a curved central tower and a gun battery, flanked by two angular wings. Shortly after its construction it was armed with eleven artillery pieces, intended for use against enemy shipping, operating in partnership with its sister castle of Sandsfoot on the other side of the anchorage. During the English Civil War, Portland was taken by the Royalist supporters of King Charles I, and then survived two sieges before finally surrendering to Parliament in 1646.

Another shot from Thursday's visit to Dorset with Darren Blight Photography.

 

I've been to Portland a few times and always came home with a shot I'm fairly happy with, but on Thursday I was looking for a new take on the well photographed location.

 

The sun was too bright to get the classic shot of the lighthouse so while we were over at Pulpit Rock I had a wander, looking at the amazing patterns in the rocks on the floor. Using one spot I found a bit of foreground that I quite liked and set up my camera, then waited for the clouds to come over so my long exposure would give some movement to them.

 

I have two versions of this shot, this one, and one with more light on the rocks, although I'm not overly fond of that as I think the harsh shadows take away from the patterns in the rock a bit, but I'll post that one at a later date and let you decide.

 

Anyway, does the composition work, let me know what you think.

Portland Bill Lighthouse, Isle of Portland in Dorset, England

Another shot from Dorset, this time a dark and moody edit of the iconic lighthouse at Portland Bill.

 

As Portland Bill's largest and most recent lighthouse, the Trinity House operated Portland Bill Lighthouse is distinctively white and red striped, standing at a height of 41 metres. It was completed by 1906 and first shone out on 11 January 1906. To date, the lighthouse guides passing vessels through the hazardous waters surrounding the Bill, while also acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.

 

I hope everyone has a good weekend, I'm off on an adventure with the camera somewhere tomorrow but I haven't quite decided yet lol!

As we were driving to Bar Harbor recently we went by Portland, ME. Can't be so close to this iconic lighthouse without visiting it. Only had a little time there so I got this quick photograph. Liked the weather this day.

 

Thanks for viewing my photo stream. Comments are always welcome.
