Sand Island Lighthouse - Mobile Alabama Art Print
This Mobile, Alabama art print features Sand Island Lighthouse in the afternoon light of the setting sun. This old derelict lighthouse may seem ironically named as there's not any sand to speak of today. Yet I've read at the turn of the century there was enough of an island here that not only was there a keeper's cottage there was room for the lighthouse keeper to graze cows! In recent years Sand Island Lighthouse was briefly surrounded by sand once more, and although much of it washed away it was hoped that enough sand remains to shore up the base of the 1859 light.
There's been a lighthouse at this location at the mouth of Mobile Bay near Dauphin Island since the 1830's. It's hard to say how much longer the landmark will remain but it was a pleasure to capture it as it looks now against a backdrop of pink and gold skies reflecting in the gulf waters.
