Prince Edward Point Lighthouse located on Lake Ontario in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada

Camera: Canon EOS 5D; Lens: Canon EF-24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM; f/6.7 @ 1/250 sec; ISO: 200; Focal length: 105mm


A contract for the construction of the lighthouse was awarded to John W. Fegan in 1880, and the lighthouse was placed in operation in 1881. The Canadian government discontinued Prince Edward Point Lighthouse in 1912, but in response to universal demand, the light was placed back in operation with the opening of navigation in 1913.
 
In 1941, the light was automated, and its characteristic was changed from fixed red to flashing green. A forty-two-foot-tall skeletal tower was erected adjacent to the lighthouse in 1959 to display a flashing white light, and the lantern room was removed from Prince Edward Point Lighthouse at this time. This skeletal tower remains active, displaying a flashing white light at a height of forty-six feet above the surrounding water. (Source: Lighthouse Friends)
