Portland Head Light
Get home from work, leash dog, “Up!” into the car, 1st gear, drive, arrive, lift dog over fence, hop fence, take pictures. That’s been a bit of routine in the last couple of weeks because low tide has been happening around dusk, offering more locations to explore and good light for long exposures. It’s a good system, Porter gets to wander around (read: chew shells) and I get to take pictures. The camera on a barely functioning tripod, perched on slippery uneven rocks is already unnerving, not to mention Porter sprinting between the tripod legs.

Exploring the alien surface.
Stopped by with Becca on a particular stormy evening, but she decided to stay in the car. Porter was enthusiastic about the foghorn.
Low tide meant we could be venture out beyond the lighthouse.
Sad that this stuff ends up in the ocean, but it makes for a good subject.
A tugboat and barge coming into port for the night.
Maybe for our next trip we will check out Two Lights…but there’s something about Portland Head that keeps us coming back.
