Portland Head Lighthouse, Cape Elizabeth ME


Check out this outstanding drone video of one of the USA's most famous lighthouses, compliments of contributor Manx.Cat.  Portland Head Light is located on a narrow promontory in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.   Maine's oldest lighthouse, it protects shipping in and out of the harbor of Portland that lies just to its north.  Maine's oldest lighthouse, it was completed in 1791, when Maine was still part of the state of Massachusetts.  Automated since 1989, the iconic black and white structure has a tower height of just over 24 meters (80 ft.).
