This lighthouse sits on top of the fort walls at Fort Taber in New Bedford, MA. It is unfortunately not an active lighthouse. The area around the fort has been turned into a really nice park however.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you liked this shot. I wasn't sure after I took it how it would come out as the angles I had on the lighthouse portion of the fort were pretty shadowed.
