West Point Lighthouse was built in 1881. It is located at the end of a sandy point which extends into Puget Sound from the base of Magnolia Bluff. It marks the northern end of Elliott Bay. The lighthouse is currently part of Discovery Park, Seattle’s largest city park.

Nikon D800, ISO 100, f/22 @ 16mm. Photomatix HDR image made from seven exposures between (-3EV, +3EV).
