Photographer's Note

The sun has set on the Killarney East Lighthouse located one mile east of the town of Killarney at Red Rock Point on the North Channel of Lake Huron's Georgian Bay. The light was originally built in 1866 and was rebuilt to it's current state in 1909.

Shebahonaning, an Ojibwe word for "canoe passage" was the original name for Killarney. The native peoples who hunted, fished and trapped here lived on what was to become a well travelled and famous trade route for voyageurs and explorers from France and England. A fur trading post was established at Killarney in 1820 by frenchman Etienne Augustin Rocbert de la Morandiere.

The Killarney of today is best known for it's fisheries, tourism and nearby Killarney Provincial Park.
