Portland Head Light Summer


Yellow goldenrods are in the foreground and all around on the hill surrounding the site. My father used to suffer greatly from summer allergies. Fortunately I’m not affected too badly. The Ram Island Ledge lighthouse is in the background as a speck. I’ve never been able to figure out how to get both lighthouses effectively on the same frame. Since I lived in Maine for a couple years, I had an opportunity to visit this lighthouse many times in different seasons.

  2. The shot of the lighthouse really pops when I enlarge the photo – had to look hard for the speck. Goldenrod – I’m sneezing in remembrance of that weed in CT. I thought by moving to CA there would be no allergy issues – wrong.
