Photo of the Day: Newport Harbor Lighthouse, RI

This photo was taken on a cold, blustery late afternoon, just before an American Lighthouse Foundation dinner in the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Goat Island, next to the lighthouse. The hexagonal stone construction of this lighthouse is unusual, and I like the style of the lantern. It's under the care of the American Lighthouse Foundation, and the picket fence was added a couple of years ago.

  1. I love lighthouses... when I was little thought I would live in one when I was grown up.

  2. I've photographed Goat Island lighthouse a few times but never from the land, only from the water.

  3. It's easy to get to, right on the grounds of the Hyatt hotel on Goat Island.
