Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse, Gros Morne National Park

Located just outside of Rocky Harbour, Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse looks out over the entrance to Bonne Bay from the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  This lighthouse has been operating since 1897, and it is still operated (automatically) by the Canadian Coast Guard.

I happened to visit the lighthouse late one evening, as it was threatening to rain.  It did rain briefly, but then the clouds broke just before sunset, letting a shaft of light illuminate the grass beside the lighthouse.
