Photographing Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

Visiting Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

For the past 14 years I have been able to visit Jupiter Florida each March.  One of my favorite activities there is to visit the lighthouse and to photograph it from various locations.  I have posted some of these photos on this blog in the past and now I want to share some updated photos from this year.  The photo above was taken on the boardwalk across the inlet from the lighthouse.  I love watching the boats passing in front of the lighthouse.

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Facts

  • Completed in 1860
  • Built on a hill
  • 105 ft tower
  • Light can be seen 24 nautical miles
  • Lighthouse museum in adjoining park where you can purchase tickets to climb to the top for a great view of the area.

More Photos of Jupiter Lighthouse

This view of the lighthouse was taken from the park that is in front of the museum.

Here is a view of the lighthouse taken from the end of the inlet just before it enters the ocean.
This photo of the lighthouse was taken through a crystal photography ball that I set on a pier across the inlet.  I have fun shooting from various angles and using new techniques.

    1. Thelma so glad you stopped by. I love photographing lighthouses. I have also photographed several in Canada in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

  2. Always fun to see your lighthouse visits through your beautiful photography, Mary Beth. I hope someday to visit Jupiter, Florida, especially during the Cardinals' Spring Training.
