Morris Island Lighthouse

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 20 April 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

The Morris Island Lighthouse is now completely surrounded by water but once sat on Morris Island with numerous buildings surrounding it. Since 1938, over 1600 feet of land surrounding the tower has been lost. The lighthouse was completed in 1876.

Lovely shot. A bit disconcerting though, water levels are getting higher and higher. But hey, there is no global warming.

I like how you composed this lighthouse picture. The history is sad and surprising. The ocean has a way of getting its way! :-)
