Thacher Island Oil House

The main brick structure in this image is the oil house on Thacher Island that was once used to store oil and flammable liquids to operate the island’s lighthouses and buildings.   Shed dormers were added in 2007, which now store some of the maintenance equipment for the island and its properties.

I had arrived on the island before sunrise, and came upon the oil house with the warm glow of its lights against the still dark sky.  Although I was mostly there to photograph the twin lighthouses, I had to stop for a few minutes to grab some shots of this scene before moving on.

    This was well worth the time, Steven. Exceptional clarity and I love the way that golden light flows out of that shed.
