Bryant- I love this lighthouse. I love lighthouses period. Living on the Oregon Coast I get to see them a lot. Isn't it amazing how they are all so different?

I love lighthouses as well. I have many, many images of lighthouse from all over our beautiful country. One day I might decide to compile some in a coffee table book! Thank for the compliment and have a great day!

Interesting. I've seen hundreds of lighthouse photos (including several of my own) but never in black and white. It's very crisp and clear; even the clouds. Very nice =)

Bryant - Very nice photo of the light house and as you know, I really like B/W. My first two years when I Begin taking photographs, I only shot B/W.

This lighthouse is certainly nice to visit and in the summers they have art for sale in the old tenders quarters.

Thank you, I prefer Black and White, I have shot hundreds of images of this lighthouse in color and this is still my favorite. I believe the texture of the masonry in lighthouses really lends itself to B&W photography.

I love B&W, I go through phases where I only would shoot B&W film and 2007 was one of those years.

Bryant,  What is not to love about lighthouses?  I've always admired the little on in NYC under the George Washington Bridge,  Karen
