Sunset over a Maine classic.
It’s been several years since my last visit to this iconic lighthouse along the coast of Maine. Fortunately, a few weeks back my good friend Nate sent me last minute text to say he had the evening off from work and to ask if I would be interested in getting out for sunset?
Of course I was interested, but then came the issue of where to go?
After a little research using PhotoPills to see how the sun would line up at several different seacoast locations we decided on Portland Head Light. Having only photographed at PHL at sunrise I had always wondered how it would be at sunset? The biggest question being, would there be enough late day light falling on the lighthouse to make it worth the hour+ drive?
As it turned out, not only was the light great, there was also an amazing sky and some really good wave action too!
So yea, definitely worth the drive.
