Cape Elizabeth, Maine

This is the lighthouse just outside of Portland, Maine. It's one of my favorite places in the world (or at least the little bits that I have visited)to take photographs, and to feel both the power and serenity of the sea.


  1. I love lighthouses; their mystery and their aura. They have stories to tell. We have quite a few lighthouses here on the California coast and I have been lucky enough to visit a few. Thank you for sharing this one Linda- so beautiful!

  2. I love lighthouses too and I love this most beautiful, atmospheric photo. I have had the pleasure of exploring the New England States and coastline and enjoyed it immensely. Maine certainly has some stunning sights to see. I live near the sea here in south-western Australia and at night I love looking to a little island 12 miles off the coast at night to count the seconds between each sweep of the lighthouse there. It is comforting somehow.

  3. Lovely picture. Did you paint this!
    Such thought-provoking places and sometimes full of mystery.
