Light And Current by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

Conimicut Point is an absolute paradox early in the day. It's beautiful and serene. The light filters across Narragansett Bay and the Providence River. Small waves form in a tidal current, tracing a line to Conimicut Lighthouse.

In the serenity, there is a subtle but real danger. The point itself is a form of the sandbar. This means that it is somewhat unstable. Sand is in perpetual renewal due to the current. The current itself runs strong and sweeps past with deceptive strength. Of course, this is why lighthouses (such as Conimicut Light) exist, to warn of potential danger.
