Highland Light Art Print 8" x 10" Travel Poster - Massachusetts
Highland Light, on the Cape Cod National Seashore in Massachusetts, has changed significantly since Edward Hopper painted the lighthouse in 1930. Several surrounding buildings no longer exist. The lighthouse was moved back 450 feet in 1996 due to coastal erosion. But to me, Highland Light has a certain permanency, a presence that provokes a little introspection. As Cape Cod’s first lighthouse, and at one time the most powerful in New England, Highland Light has witnessed many shipwrecks and to countless averted ones. As I walked across the golf course that hazy afternoon I thought of how Thoreau described this light as a “neat building, in apple pie order.” The occasional gold ball would soar overhead as I prudently searched for a promising angle to photograph. Suddenly, I heard a woman’s shrieking scream. Within a few seconds came the laughter of others as she had just made a hole in one!
