The Lighthouse At East Wharf

    Newer Older

    This is probably the most photographed place in and around Oklahoma City, but it was a first for me.

    Lake Hefner

    The sign in front of the lighthouse reads

    The lighthouse at East Wharf was constructed in 1999, it is a 36-foot working replica of the second oldest light station in America, Brandt Point.

    The 26-foot Brandt Point Lighthouse was built in 1746 near Nantucket, Ma. The lighthouse at East Wharf is a classic example of the coastal beacons that proudly stood watch over 300-year period of manned light stations. Through technology, light stations are now fully automated and no longer require lighthouse keepers. The lighthouse at East Wharf is a member of the U.S. Lighthouse Society. The society was founded to assist in the preservation and restoration of light stations - the symbols of our nations maritime heritage.

      I really liked the composition in this image. the colors are good too.
      And I really loved the birds. the direction they are flying gives a feel of end of day and that its time to go home.

      When you are there the next time, you could also try out HDR to get the details on the light house (the textures of the old stone should come out really well in the light of the setting sun)

      Congratulations!
      This is truly an excellent photograph.
