not sure how old is "old", but this lighthouse, built in 1906, is still in service today...

Excellent photo. You have several elements working to make this a good photo. First is the lighthouse which you have placed off-center. Second is the ferry boat and mountains in the background. Third is the seagull.

I don't recognize the lighthouse, but the ferry looks familiar. Is somewhere around Port Angeles or Anacortes? If not, where is it. That looks like one of the ferries that runs between Washington and Vancouver or Victoria, B.C.

Cool photo. I love lighthouses. It's nice you could get so close. Most around here are hidden behind walls or unreachable.

squirl033,

Superb lighthouse shot. As Cal noted he other elements (eagull, and ferryboat) enhance the shot even more.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

thanks, Cal. i waited specifically for the ferry to move into that little gap between islands in the background. there were seagulls everywhere, and i was hoping one would fly by at the right time... i actually took several frames, trying to get one in the right spot. the ferry in this photo is typical of the inland ferries that cross Puget Sound in a number of places. this one runs between Mukilteo, about 25 miles north of Seattle, and a little town called Clinton, on Whidbey Island.it's about a 20-minute crossing.

the lightis still operational, though it's now automated, and the building and grounds are maintained by the Mukilteo Historical Society. you can walk up to within 40 or 50 feet of the building, and on weekends they have tours... not sure how much there is to see inside, though...
