Beavertail Lighthouse at Sunset
Beavertail Lighthouse may not be the prettiest lighthouse out there, but its fantastic location makes up for it. The tide was coming in fast behind me, but thankfully the last light of sunset cooperated, and I was able to capture the colors in the sky and the reflection in the tide pool before having to move up the rocks. Beavertail Lighthouse can be found on the southern tip of Conanicut Island, known as Beavertail Point. The outline of the southern portion of Conanicut Island resembles a beaver, and the lighthouse is located at the tip of its tail. The original 1749 lighthouse stone foundation can also be seen in the top right.
