Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse


The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse was built in 1855 and is one of the oldest screw-pile lighthouses. It was initially installed on the Patapsco River. The northern reach of this river is the Baltimore Harbor, where the lighthouse is now located as a museum.

The lighthouse gave me an impression of simplicity so I wanted to replicate that in the photograph.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

  1. Love these kind of light houses. One of my favorite photographs is of Thomas Shoal Pointe in the Chesapeake. I’m not typically drawn to light houses. But I am drawn to industrial looking things, and the screw-pile style lighthouses are fantastic.
