On our short break in New England, the same day I captured “Breakwater, Rock and, ME," we found ourselves further south along the Maine Coast. 

Driving a little bit aimlessly, we ended up at Marshall Point, where we found Marshall Point Light Station, a lighthouse at the entrance of Port Clyde Harbor in Port Clyde, Maine. The light station was established in 1832.

It's positioned at the end of a walkway that extends near the water and, as I found out much later, was used in Tom Hank's movie, “Forrest Gump” (this is the easternmost point of Forrest's iconic run across the USA).

Still exploring in the grey, overcast day, I managed to squeeze a few captures in, and looking at things later, this was the one I liked the best. The small boat lends a perfect compositional counterpoint to the silhouette of Gunning Rocks (an Audubon Society preserve) in the distance, and helps bring a sense of scale to the image.
