This is a small memorial located on the inlet in Point Pleasant, NJ. It is dedicated to mariners who have lost their lives at sea. There must have been 30-40 plaques going back to 1934 and the most recent in 1999.

    Very cool image – love that bright blue sky behind the memorial!

  2. Sad to think that there is this or the like at most coastal towns world wide.

  3. Love this photo…the processing you used is fabulous! Unfortunately, Ron is right and I hope they’re all remembered as we Jerseyan’s do!!

  4. Beautifully photographed.

  5. What a poignant memorial! Is he looking to guide the lost mariners home with his lantern?
