This lighthouse memorial is located on the bluffs overlooking the bay in the city of Trinidad which was founded in 1850 and is the oldest town on the northern California coast.

The lighthouse memorial is a replica of the nearby Trinidad Head Lighthouse. In 1949 the Trinidad Civic Club was the recipient of the California Grand Sweepstakes prize, Build a Better Community Contest, which was awarded by the National Federation of Women’s Clubs and the Kroeger Company. It is a memorial to those lost and buried at sea.

Digital image post processed in Photoshop to create a painterly effect and then a triptych effect also created in Photoshop.
