Portland Head Lighthouse- Beautiful by Land and Sea


On a recent cruise I was delighted when we passed close enough by Portland Head lighthouse so that I could get some photographs. This historic lighthouse was built in 1791 and is the oldest lighthouse in the state of Maine.  It is located in Cape Elizabeth Maine and sits on a piece of land at the entrance to the main shipping channel to Portland Maine.
I had been to the lighthouse several years ago and visited it from the land side.  At that time the fog was rolling in so I had to snap a few quick shots before the lighthouse was completely engulfed by the fog.  Here are a couple of the photos I took in 2005.
