Look Up Look Down: Key West Lighthouse

What on Earth, I was asking myself, am I going to do about travelwithintent’s Look Up Look Down photo challenge while stuck on an island as flat as a pancake?

Then I spotted the lighthouse. And for ten bucks, they let you go up there. So I did.

Zooming in through the window on one of those cruise ships. Looks like a toy!

I'm at the top! The wind is nearly ripping my ears off.

Strange how the sky in this direction is so completely different from the other side... very scenic, though

    Thanks for going to all that trouble 😉 I love those moody shots, they are almost black and white but the boats add just a little colour. Lovely! I’m in Florida at the moment but we’re having a stormy day today!

      Yes, go if you can. They also have a museum there (that’s why they charge ten bucks for the ticket), which is a bit dull, but the film about the lighthouse’s history is well worth watching. I was totally captivated by all those hurricanes which tore down an x-number of them.
