This was the second time that I specially went to photograph the Nobska Lighthouse. It is located at Woods Hole on Cape Cod. It is sitting right on the division of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound. I went there during the last day of my visit to our Cape Cod home at the end of last August.
It was first built in 1828, then rebuilt in 1876. The lighthouse is fully automated in 1985. Since then, the station is the home of the commander of US Cost Guard Sector Southeastern New England.
Here is a better view of the lighthouse and the home of the Cost Guard Commander. I think the beacon behind is now the real modern lighthouse!!
