This place is only about 35 miles from my house. It is now enveloped into houses and city streets. I have taken the 203 steps to the top. The view from the balcony is priceless considering the state of Florida is flat as a board. it is the tallest in Florida.

Hello Jimmy, a totally red lighthouse, that seems quite unusual to me.
How close to any water is it?
Some of the shot seems a little soft on the focusing, but it is still an interesting post.
Good contrasts between the red and the blue sky.
Regards Jean.

Hello Jimmy ;
a little lack of sharpness , but this red light tower is really impressive . Beautiful sky in the Bg .

ciao Jimmy,
It looks like a red missile, good composition and good idea, low sharpness or out of focus in the bottom of the photo.
ciao, Giacomo

Nice picture , basis of structure look like a key hole , and lighthouse could be the key to the sky .
Imagination !!!
Thanks for sharing .

Hello Jimmyjimmy, I think I have never seen the lighthouse in this striking red colours. It looks great. Fine place in Florida. Great opportunity to see something from above. 203 steps climbing was well worth the not so big effort. Now it is easier with drones. I like this composition very much.

Hi Jimmy,
Very beautiful lighthouse, a pleasant angle to take the view and give an impressive height. I like the red color of the column maybe more sharpness would be interesting.
Your view reminds me this nice lighthouse, i have posted a photo of this lighthouse in Daytona beach location.

Hello Jimmy,
great the view of the Ponce Inlet lighthouse with its red painting to contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.The clouds completes perfect the whole scenery.


Hi Jimmy
yes, Florida certainly isn't known for its mountains haha
this is the tallest lighthouse in Florida you say?
would love to see the views from the top if you have any.
that crimson red is awesome, if they wanted to make a statement they succeeded! love the cloud coverage too

amazing the red lighthouse, usually they are white. I liked the classic portico and the lower pov showing the beauty of the structure. TFS.

take care


Hi Jimmy,

What makes this shot so appealing is the intense color of the lighhouse and the POV, which makes the building looks enormous. The sky is amazing, its clear colors create a beautiful contrast with the red of the lighthouse. Well done.
