White Island Light - Isles Of Shoals
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
The Isles of Shoals are a group of small islands and tidal ledges situated approximately 6 miles (10 km) off the east coast of the United States, straddling the border of the states of New Hampshire and Maine. Consisting of nine islands altogether, when boundaries were established between the states, Maine got the five larger islands to the north and New Hampshire got the four smaller on the south side of the border. One of New Hampshire's islands - White Island - houses one of two lighthouses on the New Hampshire coast.
From the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation:
"The first lighthouse at the Isles of Shoals was erected on White Island in 1820. It was made out of stone and wood shingles. The White Island Lighthouse Station is one of New England's great historic landmarks. This shining tower protected northeastern mariners from crashing into its rocky shores. It is also New Hampshire's only offshore lighthouse.
The tower was rebuilt in 1859 by the United States government to help fortify the seacoast. This is the tower that remains today on White Island. It is built from bricks and stone and stands 85 feet above mean high water. In 1993, White Island and a couple other islands in the group were transferred to the New Hampshire State Parks system and is now managed by the Bureau of Historic Sites." http://www.nhstateparks.org/explore/state-parks/white-island-state-historic-site.aspx
