We had taken and posted it images of the Concord Point Lighthouse in January 2015, at night and when the lighthouse was decorated in festive colors. On a recent trip to the region, we had the opportunity to revisit the lighthouse and take picture during sunrise during a chilly (but very clear and colorful) sunrise.

The Concord Point Lighthouse is located on a strategic location on both historic significance as during the War of Independence there have been military operations, and also on commercial and navigational significance, as the light is located a the mouth of the Susquehanna River flows at the Chesapeake Bay (the northernmost lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay).
