2020—Double Beams

Maine’s Portland Head Lighthouse and Ram Island Ledge Light Station in the distance once shined the way for ships entering Casco Bay toward the Portland Harbor. Treacherous ledges made it imperative to build these lighthouses, Portland Head Light in a 1791 and more than a hundred years later, the Ram Island Ledge Light Station was completed in 1905. Neither lighthouse is still used for navigation with the Ram Island Ledge Light Station now in private hands. But, I thought the addition of the light beams on an early sunrise view of both lighthouses evoked days gone by.
