Is it Watch Hill Lighthouse, Rhode Island?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Good job, Laurence, now it's your turn. I had deliberately avoided more context so identification wouldn't be too easy. Here is a more identifiable view, with a hint of the high rent district that is Watch Hill. You can also get a hint of the tidal currents in this area.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

hi Fallard, I guessed we were looking at a lighthouse in your cruising area of New England. Google images revealed hundreds of great looking lighthouses in the NE coastal states and it was obvious by the similarity in designs my guess was close to the mark. 30 mins on Google and I eventually identified your pic as Watch Hill

I'll try to continue with the lighthouse theme with my next pic.

Good detective work, Laurence. Watch Hill is less than 6 nm from my dock.
