The Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth overlooking the rugged headland. As a bonus since it sits at the entrance of the shipping channel into Portland Harbor this is also a perfect location to shoot some of the huge ships going in and out of the harbour. Completed in 1791, and originally lit with 16 whale oil lamps, it is the oldest lighthouse in Maine.
