Lighthouse - Key West, Florida
I've visited a few lighthouses in my travels along the eastern seaboard
of the United States. But this is the first one I couldn't get the ocean
in the background! All the trees in the area are so overgrown, I couldn't
even "see" the ocean from this vantage point. In fact, probably the only
way to get the ocean in the background of this lighthouse, would probably
be from sitting in an airplane as it flew overhead. But, just because you
can't see the water in the background, doesn't mean it's not there. After
all, why would they build a lighthouse if there weren't boats somewhere
in the area. And that means, there's gotta be water somewhere close by.
Maybe on the next trip to the Keys, I'll take a boat out into the water
and try to take the photo from the ocean side looking inward toward land.
*Again, it's really nice to see that so many people are enjoying my
photo collection, and I'm really enjoying the wonderful comments that a
lot of you are telling me about these photographs and their stories. A
recent visitor and new friend from the Richmond Virginia area expressed
how much they enjoyed lighthouses. So of course, I searched my collection
and I'm really glad I could add another lighthouse to my online collection
for their enjoyment.
