« Inside my empty bottle I was constructing a lighthouse while all others were making ships. »
It was pitch dark out when I turned my car off and opened up the door to get out. Standing and stretching never feels better than after driving for 7 hours. I'll never get tired of the outdoor silence at 4am. I had only but a vague idea of where I was going. I grabbed my backpack full of lenses, the tripod and camera gear and started walking towards the ocean. After months of planning I was finally about to lay eyes on a picturesque lighthouse. I still couldn't see the lighthouse, but I was treated to a tad bit of color in the sky and just enough clouds. All good signs.
Since I had studied where the sun was going to rise, I knew where I wanted to plant myself down. I scurried down some rocks and took in the scene before me. As usual, there was some adjusting to get my composition, but sometimes it's just nice to take in everything around you. I stood there for an hour in order to burn the moment into my memory. The sun just crossed over the horizon and began bathing the area in it's warmth. And now I have this photo to help take me back. I hope this conveys my moment in time for you.

In 1823, the 46-mile long Champlain Canal was completed, linking Lake Champlain to the Hudson River and the New York City market. Twenty years after, the 12-mile long Chambly Canal was constructed in Quebec, allowing inexpensive lumber to flow from the St. Lawrence River to Lake Champlain. The two canals led to growth at Burlington, which, by 1873, became the 3rd largest lumber port in the country.
The Harbor, exposed to winds, needed a breakwater to protect its vessels. Federally funded, one was begun to be built in 1837. Completed in 1854, it was extended in 1867, two years after the Civil War ended.
Wooden lighthouses were first placed on the ends of the break water/wall in 1857 to mark entrances to the harbor. Due to fire and numerous storms, including one when, in 1876, the wooden schooner, General Butler, carrying 30 tons of marble, numerous people including the captain’s 16 year old daughter and girlfriend, and someone needing the hospital in Burlington, was struck by a wave then the break wall, eventually led to the building of a lighthouse, funded in 1871.
Lights were manually lit for the first time in 1938.
In 2001, the lighthouses were rebuilt, better, via a plea from Burlington’s Mayor Peter Clavelle to Senator Patrick Leahy’s office, to resemble the originals. Built by Atlantic Mechanical, Inc. of Wiscasset, Maine.
