Maryland LH Challenge 06 - Piney Point

Just got back from a lighthouse trip? Have you just finished photographing every aspect of one lighthouse? Post the pictures here! Lighthouse-related photos are also welcome.

The Maryland Challenge began with the typical drizzly cloudy weather that seems to haunt the challenge each year...

As a Harbour Lights collector, the main event for me during the Maryland Lighthouse Challenge this year was visiting with Harry Hines who is the artist/designer of all those detailed sculptures.

The sun finally begins to pop through at Piney Point. Shirin, this one's for you...

Judy I've never seen this lighthouse but from your first photo the keeper's house looks to be almost the same height as the lighthouse!?

It's pretty close to the same height. The tower itself is 35'. I haven't been to Piney Point since early 2002. I need to burn a few hundred gallons of gas this winter and visit some of the lights I haven't seen in several years.
