Baltimore Beacon revisited

 Built in 1849, Baltimore Becon is a conspicuous landmark, though it has never been lit. An original smaller beacon on the site had been vandalised, so it was recommended a big fifty footer be built.
 Due to its resemblance to a pillar of salt, it has often been called Lot's Wife. I clambered up to it last year. These photos are from the sea, looking up.
 Baltimore, incidentally has absolutely nothing to do with its American namesake.
