Castle Hill Lighthouse at twilight, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. This prize-winning photograph is also available in a vertical format and a vertical panoramic format. It is currently one of the cover photos as well as the frontispiece of the section on Rhode Island in the 2015 DK Eyewitness Guide to New England.
The beautiful granite tower, completed in 1890, is built right into the cliff face. The original beacon was a kerosene-powered fifth-order Fresnel lens, which was replaced in 1899, and again in 1957 by the current modern plastic lens when the last lighthouse keeper left and Castle Hill light was automated in 1957. With its red beacon, Castle Hill light house is still an active navigational aids for ships in Narragansett Bay heading toward Providence and Newport, RI.
I have many views of this iconic Newport RI landmark so please see my portfolio if you would like to see more.
If you are interested in a pillow with this image,they are available on the rectangular cropped images because, ironically, those give you a better square image on the pillow because they have more sky to allow for the excess space for trim. They also work better for cards and smartphone iPhone and Galaxy cases so please see my portfolio for choices if you want my art on these products.
