SkyWatch Friday, Tenpound Island at Dusk

Dusk falls over Gloucester Harbor. The green light is the nun buoy marking the channel into Gloucester Harbor. The little lighthouse is Tenpound Island Light. Off to the right in the background is the red light at the end of Dogbar Breakwater.

Dogbar Breakwater extends one half mile from Eastern Point in East Gloucester across the mouth of Gloucester Harbor providing a safe haven form the north east storm waves.

Terrific shot! and such intense blue -- the sky and the water! Lovely lighthouse! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

There is nothing more scenic than a lighthouse. I don't know why that is. Part of it is that it's near coastal water.

This shot is a little different from what you usually post and I like it. I was just thinking the other day after looking at Jay's blog that you really don't see a lot of night pictures on blogs.

Great skywatch friday shot.

Tomorrow I'm headed to Joppa Flats on Plum Island for the first time. Have you been before?
