Nighttime at the Portland Head Light

I had recently traveled back up to Maine in search of dark sky’s. It is always a great trip. I have great friends there, the food is always amazing, and the night sky is nothing short of spectacular. I had the opportunity to get a few shots of the Portland Head Light at night. The Head Light is the most photographed light house in the world.

My goal was to get the Head Light with the Milky Way galaxy behind it, a shot rarely seen. Unfortunately, mother nature did not co-operate and we were left with a very overcast sky. It was also so cold out that night with a biting wind that we had to take frequent “warm up” breaks to regain feeling in our fingers and toes.

I did manage to get a few keepers though. Here is one of them…

Here is a shot of the beautiful city of Portland, Maine. Portland is one of those magical places where small town still applies to a city. From the artisan bakeries, to the home made ice cream, to the fresh caught lobsters Portland is just a great place to be (and eat). Art is everywhere you look in Portland which is a city abound by small business still thriving despite the ever looming threat of big box stores.  It is also a great place for photographers to visit, boasting the most photographed light house in the nation, The Portland Head Light.
