This little lighthouse, still in use, and dating back to 1889, is right on the main street, St. George Street, of the little town of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada. The town, of Annapolis Royal, in an area originally inhabited by a strong Mi’kmaq community, was founded by French settlers in 1605.

Sony NEX-5N, 18-55mm Sony zoom.

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.

    Most unusual and attractive lighthouse David – they can be so different but all achieve the same result !

  • I was amazed to find out how old it is – 1889. They were still using this design fifty years later!

    It’s still in great condition by the looks of it and has stood up well to the battering it must have taken over the years. Nice photo mate

  • Thanks, Peter. It’s almost unnerving to see it right on the main street.
