Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse

The breakwater in Rockland juts out almost a mile into the ocean protecting the harbor from the worst of winter storms. I'm astounded by the feats of engineering required to produce something as aesthetically simple as a breakwater.

I like in this image how you can see the chop on the left and get a feel for how the whole contraption works with the glass smooth water on the harbor side to the right.
