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.

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!

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 Maine.

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

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.

Portland Head Light is an 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.

 

Construction began in 1787 at the directive of George Washington, and was completed on January 10, 1791, using a fund of $1,500, established by him. Whale oil lamps were originally used for illumination.

 

Completed in 1791, it is the oldest lighthouse in Maine. The light station is now 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.

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 long exposure

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

Last light over the lighthouse at Portland Bill, Dorset. The clouds just holding the colour of a wonderful sunset, taken just before the first lockdown back in 2020. Seems a long time ago now!

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 Lighthouse is a functioning lighthouse at Portland Bill, on the Isle of Portland, Dorset. This is the southernmost point on the English coast east of Devon. The lighthouse and its boundary walls are Grade II Listed.

 

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 first shone out on 11 January 1906. The lighthouse guides passing vessels through the hazardous waters surrounding the Bill, while also acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.

 

The builders, Wakeham Bros. of Plymouth, began work on the foundations in October 1903. Chance & Co of Birmingham supplied and fitted the lantern. The 1906 optic was, incredibly, still in use in 2011 when this photo was taken, albeit with new light sources.

 

In 2019-20 a new non-rotating LED light source was installed in the lantern room and a new omnidirectional fog signal was installed on the exterior lantern gallery (replacing the electric emitter installed in the 1990s. The two LED lanterns (one of which is used, the other kept on standby) have a reduced range of 18 nautical miles (33 km), just ¾ of the older sources’ range. This is, of course, progress.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There were some interesting coastal plants to see at Portland Bill which I thought might make an interesting foreground to the lighthouse.

From my recent trip to Portland. I got lucky with nice weather and beautiful view from the Pittock mansion. I am going to process the photographs of the mension. Pretty nice place with interesting history.

 

Most of the wild flowers at Portland Bill have died back now but I thought the remnants would make an interesting foreground.
