Runway To The Sky
by Michael A Blanchette
Marshall Point light sits on a rocky point near the fishing village of Port Clyde, Maine. In addition to the tower, the lighthouse features a long wooden runway and a restored Keeper's House. The present tower was erected in 1858, and the Keeper's House was replaced in 1895 after the original structure was destroyed by lightning. In the 1993 movie, Forest Gump, Tom Hanks finished his long run on this runway.
Equipment: Nikon D810 with Nikon 24-70mm Lens
