Portland, ME – Portland Head Light (HDR)

The Portland Head Light is one of the most photographed Lighthouses in the US.   A wonderful sight to see.  This is the lesser known photographed side of the lighthouse.  The other side has great cliffs and cascading water.  Check my old posts for this view.  The Lighthouse is located in Fort Williams Park.  Here is some info from the web:   Fort Williams is one of the most treasured sites of Cape Elizabeth. Home to the oldest lighthouse in Maine,Portland Head Light, Fort Williams has become a place of tourism, recreation, and leisure time enjoyment. Welcoming nearly a million visitors a year, it is not surprising to see people on any given day of the year enjoying the playing fields, tennis courts, beach, or simply walking around the park. During the winter months many find Fort Williams an ideal place to cross-country ski, sled, or even ice skate on the pond. Special events such as Family Fun Day, the Labor Day Art Show, the People’s Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race and performances by the Portland Symphony Orchestra happen yearly, but it is the daily peacefulness of Maine’s coastline that has made Fort Williams such a special place for so many generations to enjoy.
