Isle la Motte Tower
Isle la Motte is an island on Lake Champlain in Vermont and has this wonderful lighthouse on its northwestern side facing New York State. The lighthouse is owned by a local family and for years the tower light had been replaced by a skeletal tower. In the early 2000s the light was returned to the tower by the US Coast Guard and has once again become an active aid to navigation. This lighthouse is very similar to that of the black-colored Tongue Point Light in Bridgeport, Connecticut. I got lucky with the clear skies on this night but had to drive over 300 miles since most of New England had been mired in cold and wet dismal weather.
