In late March, the St. George Lighthouse Association sponsored a field trip for Franklin County Middle School’s photo literacy students. The middle school shutterbugs were treated with a tour of the Lighthouse Museum and a free climb up the lighthouse. The highlight of the trip, for the young photographers, was taking pictures of the amazing view from the top of the lighthouse.

After their trip, the students created poetry and mono prints of the lighthouse. Below are two fine examples of the poems, the first one an acrostic, where the first letter of each line spells out the word “Lighthouse.”
