Moonrise over Portland Headlight

On a perfect fall evening in October, I made the drive up to Cape Elizabeth to try and capture the nearly full moon rising behind the tower of Portland Headlight. Photographing the moon is always an exciting event- althought I have resources that help me line up compositions like this, there's always some degree of unpredictability that I love. I had envisioned the moon directly behind the lighthouse, and luckily I managed to take a few exposures just before clouds moved in and blocked the rising moon.
