No collection of iconic scenic photos would be complete without at least one picturesque lighthouse. This particular tower, located in Point Atkinson, northwest of Vancouver, BC, was built in 1914 on granite boulders jutting out into Burrard Inlet, across the Georgia Strait from Vancouver Island. The reinforced concrete structure replaced a wood structure built in 1875 and was considered an innovative design at the time. The lighthouse is still active but now automated.
This shot was taken on Day One of our Alaska cruise in 2019, just after leaving the Port of Vancouver. It was among the first of a plethora of scenic portraits I was fortunate to take during the trip.
