This picture of Portland Head Light House marks the end of our one week trip to New England Area at the end of day. We flew into Boston, Massachusetts. We rented a car and drove through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. We have been charmed by the Vermont small towns and villages and the wonderful nature and fall colors of the New Hampshire, and the peaks of Mt Washington. We have been awed by the beauty and majesty of the Acadia National Park and the coastline of Maine. It is a little sad to finally end the trip. This was our last stop and we almost missed it. We wanted to get here before sunset, but on the way, we had to cross a bridge over the bay, but we were block for about 15 minutes. The bridge was raised to allow a large cargo freight to go through under the bridge. But we were lucky enough to get in and have a few shots before the ranger come and tell us to leave that the park was close at sunset. We drove from here back to Boston and flew back to LA the next morning.
I travel with you reading the story behind :-) This sounds like a brilliant little trip. I know the Lighthouse from the air, been there some weeks ago eating a large plate of sea food near the ocean after landing. Portland is quite a busy little city, lots of boat traffic too with folks island hopping. What a great moody image, the sky is just awesome. Worthwhile being "trapped" before the raised bridge, it slows you down - somehow.
You must be getting a little nerveous, not far from the big day?
W.Lim (2018/10/11 16:06:40): Yes, in 2 weeks, but it can also be early, so we are getting ready to leave any time. At least this time we don't have to go too far, it's only an hour away.
It is quiet a lot to do, but we did have two whole weeks and These State are smaller and not that far apart, so it seems like alot, but we have plenty of time and visiting the same places at different time, we took it pretty relax and not rushing, early rise to see the sunrise and after that enjoy a long breakfast and driving around.
The lighthouse compound is very New England, as is the granite shoreline; however what makes this image extra special is the amazing light! We often flew to Boston and drove up Nova Scotia since Larry had family in both places. It is a delightful journey and there are many ways of altering the route, one time we even took a car ferry from Digby, NS to Maine. I even got to see the fall colors in NS once. HLJ x 3.9, P
