14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Monomoy Light

Although the Monomoy Lighthouse was decommissioned in 1923, for over 70 years it served as a beacon on one of the United States most dangerous stretches of water. Nowadays, the lighthouse is the property of the US FWS, and at the right time of the day, you can still almost see the way the light used to shine from its tower.
