touring the North Head Lighthouse, Cape Disappointment

The windows of this Washington State lighthouse have to be TRANSPARENT in order for the ships to see the light from this lens:

Thematic Photographic is hosted by Carmi. Carmi posts a new theme each Wednesday and we get the whole week to post as little or as many times as we wish. This week’s theme has been TRANSPARENT.



I’m running behind schedule for the Weekly Words Challenge (kept on schedule by Tink of Pickled Beef). Check back tomorrow for “9” and DESIRE.

  1. Wow. Lenses. Symbolically profound.

    Look to the side of the lighthouse. See the little house-ish attachment. Note the crosses. I wonder what that’s about, what the designer was after, if anything.

  2. Where did you find a lighthouse! Great pics Gal!

  3. I love light house..that one is interesting ..are those crosses built into it?

  4. I love light houses. Beautiful.

  5. I’m a big fan of lighthouses in general and this one is marvelous! I don’t know if it was you or someone else, but it seems like I’ve seen someone feature this light before. Whatever. It’s a great pair of shots and a great take on the theme. Two great takes actually.

  6. I’d say transparent and lighthouse is a cool connection alright.

  7. Very cool, indeed. Lighthouses have such a connection to the past.

  8. I’d never noticed the crosses in the building design before!
    This lighthouse is one of several warning ships of dangerous waters at the mouth of the Columbia River. For many years that area was called “The Graveyard of the Pacific” so perhaps the design of the building *does* have a purpose.

  9. Great use of “transparent”! I too love lighthouses.

  10. Beautiful shots, the shot of the light is wonderful.

  11. I love old lighthouses . Great pictures.

  12. Gorgeous shots, KC. Very impressive.

  13. I’m stuck on the name. Cape Disappointment–marginally better than Cape Fear I suppose.

  14. I’m stuck on the word “transparent.” Such a powerful way to be!!!
