Lighthouses are wonderful photographic subjects. Beacons of light, friends to all at sea, symbols of hope lighthouses are grand for many reasons. Here are a few images I’ve captured of lighthouses.
San Juan Island has two lighthouses.
Lime Kiln Lighthouse is on the west side of the island and is famous for whale watching and sunsets. The lighthouse is surrounded by people watching the sunset. Getting the right angle to shoot from was not hard. Inside the lighthouse there is electronic equipment, the red colored LED lights glow, faintly.
Cattle Point Lighthouse
This lighthouse is located on the south side of the island. There is no light that shines at night, just an electronic panel atop the lighthouse building.
Access is easy on all sides of the lighthouse, it sits atop a bluff. I saw a fox there, in the bushes nearby, but no pics!
