Just in Time at Marblehead

Marblehead Light is the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation on the Great Lakes. Opened in 1820, it stands 40 feet tall and today is part of Marblehead State Park.

The park itself is relatively new. Marblehead Light is among the best known and photographed of Lake Erie lighthouses, but it has been a latecomer to my list of lighthouses that I’ve photographed.

A friend and I paid a visit to Marblehead last July, arriving late in the day because we also wanted to make sunset photographs on Lake Erie.

Had we been much later we would have not had direct sunlight on the lighthouse. By the time we left, the sun had already dipped below the tree line.
