St. Marks Lighthouse in Florida
This is the St. Marks Lighthouse, located in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, on Apalachee Bay, on the Gulf Coast, in the Florida Panhandle. I wish the water had been more still so that I could have gotten a better reflection.
I had to walk thru some mud to get to this shot! And I was amazed to see alligators in the area because I didn't know they could live in salty water, tho I guess there is enough fresh water mixed in here from a river which empties into the bay. There were some signs around warning people not to feed the gators. I also saw a snake next to this lighthouse on one of my visits.
