Assateague lighthouse

An historic lighthouse, now under management of the Coast Guard. It was closed for the winter, so we couldn't go in. Perhaps a better sky would have improved this shot.

I see it goes back to the mid-1800's . . certainly looks well-maintained and cared for.

The sky is fine; a few wispy clouds adds character. A very handsome lighthouse.

A well-composed shot of this lighthouse bathed in sunlight!! The sky still provides great contrast.

I love this mellow winter light on the plants and the buildings. I think the lone cloud makes all the difference to the sky!
