Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse-Photo by Jacob Haddon

Located on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse is an iconic and historic symbol of the area’s rich maritime history. This screw-pile lighthouse, built in 1875, is one of the few remaining of its kind in the United States and the only one in its original location. Its distinctive red-and-white exterior, hexagonal wooden cottage, and metal support structure provide a unique subject for architectural photography. The lighthouse’s isolated location, accessible only by boat, adds to its allure and presents a captivating contrast between the man-made structure and the expansive natural surroundings. The waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the sky provide a dynamic background that changes with the weather and the time of day, presenting countless opportunities to capture the lighthouse in different lights and moods.
