Cap-des-Rosiers Lighthouse.

    Newer Older

    Canada’s tallest lighthouse, it soars 34.1 metres (112 feet) into the air. With white marble walls over 2.1 metres (7 feet) thick at the base and tapering to 0.9 metres (3 feet) at the top of the tower, it stands on a foundation rooted 2.4 metres (8 feet) deep in the soil. Its powerful light, perched 41.4 metres (136 feet) above the sea, has guided ships without fail since the lighthouse was built. The site has been developed to enhance this magnificent structure, which was declared a national historic site in 1977 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.

      That is a crazy S-curve in the clouds, it makes for a marvelous shot, and the addition of the story details is great.
