photoblog image Tybee Island Lighthouse

Tybee Island Lighthouse

Georgia's Oldest & Tallest....

A complete light station whose history dates back to 1736. The tower stands 145 feet tall and has three Light Keeper's Cottages nearby. A small 1812 Summer Kitchen holds archaeological finds. Across the street is an 1899 Military Battery that houses the Tybee Island Museum. Exhibits cover the time of the Euchee tribe, the history of Fort Screven, Tybee's Golden Era and more. A yellow raised cottage adjacent to the property showcases 1900s Tybee architecture.

All very good, Elizabeth, a happy memory of our visit.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Frank!
You have deployed your crass filter very well, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Ray! Glad you thinks so!
Jolie composition pour la photo de ce phare.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Martine!
As lighthouses go, Elizabeth, it's a real beauty. I'm so glad to remember that I really WAS there, even though I had initially forgotten. (sigh) I love the reflection in the second image.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is a very nice one, isn't it! Isn't it odd what sticks in our memories, and what doesn't... Thank you, Ginnie!

Just about every UK lighthouse I've come across is around whereas those in the US in the US seem be non-round. I like your view through the grasses very much but I especially like the one-legged gull smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You know, I've never even thought about it!! Now I'll start noticing!
Thanks so much, Alan!
A fine trio of pictures E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much!

A superb photograph Elizabeth, I like the way you have captured the tall grasses to compete with the lighthouse.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Chad! So glad you approve!

They are both excellent compositions - each for its own reasons.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Louis! So pleased you think so!
excellent image Elizabeth. Great framing and I like the B&W
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Rob! Much appreciated!
I especially like your POV in the top shot, what an interesting place to visit.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Brian! It was. And it held special interest for me, as my grandfather and his brothers used to spend their summers here!
I love lighthouses. What a beauty this one is with its contrast of B&W
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are fascinating! Don't see many in Arizona smile
Thank you, Ruthie!
Love your POV with the sand & grass in the foreground, Elizabeth. What a view there must be from the top of the lighthouse.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Beverly!! It was closed to visitors when we went - or I certainly would have loved to go up!

oh, wow, just the hint of color in the top image

it's superb
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Sherri! I debated going full B&W... but liked that little bit of blue - thanks for noticing, I'm glad you approve!
> My favourite image is the lighthouse > top photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good - mine, too! Thanks Jacqueline!
I love this. It looks so windswept and desolate. I guess it is but there must be people there as there is a man sitting on a boat in the 2nd picture.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Sheila! We were certainly there in the "off" season - with a few other souls!
Very nice shots,especially the center one.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary!
Sea oats and lighthouses... works for me...
