What history this lighthouse has, I can't imagine what it would have been like to be the keeper back during the day. Your photo makes the waters look so calm and looks great in b/w. Did you take a tour inside? thanks for a great photo and a history lesson. Bob

Nice, Dave. I wish we had some light houses to view while sailing (instead of refineries and Port of Houston cranes). I really like the conversion, buddy.

I like the composition in this photo. Also the sepia toning works great!

Very nice! The B&W fits perfectly here. It looks like an old lighthouse.
