There is something about a lighthouse that appeals to me. Is it because they stand alone agains the elements looking out for mariners crossing the uncertain waters or is it the fact that they shine bright light in the night sky? I'm sure there are people out there who wouldn't think twice while walking/sailing past one, well I'm not one of them. I love a lighthouse, I will take a detour if there is a lighthouse on the way to a different destination. They pull me in. This is a picture of a small fairly new river beacon yet still to me it offers plenty for my imagination. I could listen to stories it had to say, of sailors nearly loosing their way, boat races and travelers that sailed by. To me a lighthouse offers so much more than light it shines although I will take the light as well.
