Beautiful image Scott! I was looking at some old images from my first digital camera - a Nikon D70, and it's amazing how well they hold up.

The one thing I noticed about the camera was how strong the colors always were.

A great opportunity to capture a seldom seen view of this iconic lighthouse. Your skill with a camera makes this a truly outstanding photo in my opinion!

It would be even more impressive if I uploaded a 20meg file instead of the long side 2500 pixel one.
Thanks everyone for your comments.

The "Annie C. Maguire", a British three-masted barque sailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 24 December 1886, went aground on the ledge here at Portland Head Light. They got everyone off.

Looks like a "perfect" photo to me -- sharp with good exposure and color. It doesn't get any better than that.

Nikon D70s with a Nikkor 35-70 3.5-?? AF lens. Slow the plane down to 80 mph and open the window while he orbits overhead.
