Fisgard Lighthouse is a special place on the southern end of Vancouver Island, and is a place we like to visit as often as we can during the course of a year.  Its personality changes with the seasons and the weather, and the angles from which you can view it create fresh and distinct compositions.  For those who are new to our blog, please feel free to check out all the posts we’ve done on Fisgard Lighthouse to see all the photos and to read about it’s incredible history and meaning to the community.

Fisgard Lighthouse sits in the heart of the Fisgard Lighthouse Historical Site and is accessible via Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites.  Built in 1860, before Vancouver Island was even an official part of Canada, this immaculately maintained lighthouse is located near the Esquimalt Harbor and has been an active safety beacon ever since.  It is also a lovely piece of historic architecture that creates an outstanding landmark in the area, easily recognizable from many different vantage points.

As we continue our work on a community based project here on Vancouver Island, we recently had the opportunity to head out on a boat to capture some shots.  It goes without saying that as soon as we came around the corner and saw the lighthouse here, we immediately grabbed a number of shots from differing angles.  We’ll be sharing more of those in the coming weeks, so if you love lighthouses half as much as we do you’ll want to stay tuned!

Thanks kindly for taking the time to visit us here at The Hollow today, we really appreciate it.  As always, we love to hear from all our visitors, so please feel free to leave us any comments you may have below.

    That light certainly has some character, a beauty

    When the weather is dull and the background ‘greys out’, then the foreground stands proud. And that is exactly what this picture is about – that lighthouse commands the scene superbly. The weather was on your side, Toad.
