Nobska Light

This lighthouse stands high on a bluff in Falmouth, MA. The past couple of weeks I’ve been spending some time on Cape Cod to help my parents with some things. It has slowed down my trips to make images of covered bridges quite a bit but the good news is that I can share views like this.

    I’ve always enjoyed images of lighthouses. This one is no exception. Last year, on a visit to Baltimore, I learned that there were lightships with crews stationed at points where lighthouses weren’t practical. Those are gone now with the development of small, low power beacons that don’t require constant maintenance.

      Those lightships are pretty cool. Years ago, I was able to tour the lightship Nantucket and climb up into the light. That was pretty cool but not for the faint of heart.

    I can relate to your comment about climbing up the lighthouse not for the faint of heart. Several years ago, the lighthouse on the Navy base here in town had a holiday open house with lighthouse tours. I opted to climb to the top. Whew! Glad I did, but I doubt I would do it again. Talk about narrow and winding!! Such a lovely photo, Chris.

    I love this photo. I have not been able to visit a lighthouse, yet, but it is definitely on my bucket list. This one is beautiful and the angle you have captured it from is perfect. Nice work Chris!

      Thank you so much, Andi. I hope one of these days you find the time to visit a lighthouse. It’s really fun, especially if they let you go up inside of it.

    I love lighthouses. In fact, I’ve just finished reading a book about those around Britain and Ireland (Seashaken Houses by Tom Nancollas). I must get out more and do some sketching; goodness, I think I’ve just discovered my next project!

        Okay, now we both have a goal. I’ve discovered that there are about 14 lighthouses in Ireland and some have accommodation! I’ll tackle those closer to home first maybe I’ll go south next spring.

        I’ve climbed up in lighthouses but never stayed in one. Currently, they are only offering tours that go by Boston Light but don’t land there to explore the island. Perhaps, this is something that needs to wait for the end of COVID. I wish you luck in getting to stay at a lighthouse. That would be very cool.
