About This Image:
There’s simply something dreamy about this rendition of the beautiful little lighthouse on Cockspur Island off the coast between Savannah and Tybee Island. Shimmering blue waters reflect the historic lighthouse and that amazing sky above. If you love nautical art in general or have visited Cockspur Island Light, I bet this print speaks to you as much as it does to me. I feel such a sense of serenity when I look at it… It’s a charming mix of architecture and nature.
The little lighthouse on Cockspur Island might not tower as tall as Tybee Island light, but it’s a beautiful little sliver of Georgia history on the coastal waters there. And where the light at Tybee has been rebuilt several times over the years, Cockspur Island Lighthouse is relatively unchanged over the years. A beautiful sense of continuity don’t you agree?
It was built first as a daymarker for the south channel of the Savannah River in the 1830’s, but within a decade or so a light had been added to the tower on Cockspur Island. That first light was damaged in the hurricane of 1854. A year later a new lighthouse stood on Cockspur Island. And that mid 19th century lighthouse has stood every since on the water near Lazaretto Creek between Tybee and Savannah.
By 1909, the Cockspur Island Lighthouse was no longer needed to aid navigation and the old light was extinguished. The historic lighthouse has since become part of the Fort Pulaski National Monument (part of the National Park Service). And in 2007 for historic reasons rather than navigational ones, the Cockspur Island Light was lit once more.
While it might stand in the shadow of Tybee Light, Cockspur Island Light, as one person told me, is a hidden gem of the Georgia coast. The little island it rests on appears only at low tide. I’ve heard that many who visit the light up close do so as part of a day kayaking on the waters near Tybee. And it was a view over the water and the salt marsh grasses that I wanted to portray in this print of Cockspur Island Lighthouse.
Have you visited the light at Cockspur Island on a trip to the Georgia coast? Or maybe you live near there? Or perhaps you simply love the classic styling of an authentic 19th century lighthouse standing watch over serene blue coastal waters? I hope you’ll stop for a moment to share what attracted you to this particular print!

I love it!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
