Split Rock Lighthouse - Fall Color Art Print
This fall color art print features Split Rock Lighthouse near Silver Bay, Minnesota. This lighthouse on the North Shore of Lake Superior is considered by many to be one of the most picturesque US lighthouses. It was completed in 1910 and was originally named Stoney Point. It seems it was originally going to be located at a site near Split Rock River, and that is probably why the name stuck despite it being built on this 130 foot cliff a mile east of the river.
The location of Split Rock Lighthouse is indeed picturesque and enchanting. There's something of a fairy tale nature to the location, don't you think? I have expect a tall ship or swashbucklers to appear a any moment. Part of my reason for doing this lighthouse art with colorful fall foliage was simply down to the current time of the year. But I also though that the foliage gripping that high cliff would be gorgeous in autumn hues of warm gold. It's definitely eye catching, don't you agree?
Split Rock lighthouse is definitely a subject I can see re-visiting in the future. Its location is definitely what I would consider a picturesque landscape. I know the lighthouse served a utilitarian purpose when it was built but for us future generations, it makes for gorgeous and artistically inspiring scenery. Perched above the rocks and the fall foliage, it definitely serves as a beacon in many senses of the word.
