Fisgard Light, Victoria, B.C.

Lighthouses have an undeserved romantic connotation. Mostly, they were lonely, very hard working outposts with few fringe benefits other than solitude. In Arizona, the corresponding job would be fire lookout keepers, but they usually only occupy the fire towers during the fire season. This is the Fisgard Light, just down the coast from Victoria, B.C. The bright red lighthouse contrasts with the grey light of the day.
