    More on the lighthouse, kudesai. Basic camera and shot information is always a bonus.

    I have got to get back to Yokohama. Maybe in October. A walk through Yamashita park and down the prominade into China Town...

    ...one of my favorite places to go on a sunny October day.

    I spent a glorious week on Lopez Island in the San Juan Archipelago. Here's the Lime Kiln Point Lighthouse on nearby San Juan Island. It's a prime spot to see orcas...but unfortunately, not the day I was there.

    An excellent shot as always. And another little-known, but certainly picturesque, lighthouse.

    Bummer on the KW's, also one of my favorite mammals... at a distance.

    Cattle Point Light

    Thanks, George. Here's a not great shot of the Cattle Point lighthouse on San Juan Island, as seen from Lopez Island. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it over to see the lighthouse close-up. Take with a Panasonic FZ20 at full 12x zoom, into the sun.

    Still enough forground detail to make the shot interesting as is the sun reflections off the water. If you were shooting RAW you could tweek the land and lighthouse a tiny bit to pull out more detail. I normally don't goof around with other peoples pictures, but I've been using Nikon Capture recently and couldn't resist dehazing a little.

    I don't think the FZ20 shoots in RAW, does it? Anyhow, I'm not sure there was any way to get a good shoot at that time, shooting almost directly into the sun. Perhaps with filters and a DSLR?

    Iceberg Point Light

    And here is the crowning glory from my trip... The light at Iceberg Point, south end of Lopez Island.

    Lightship not lighthouse

    If we weren't having thunder & lightning and pouring with rain outside (the joys of an Irish summer), I'd nip out and get a better photograph of this old lightship, moored (permanently) about 3 miles from where I live. Now a private club and bar, its days of shining are long since gone.

    Some good shots on this thread. Must say I never thought of lighthouses as good subjects. Wrong again, Kennedy!!

    Lightships are cool. I visited one permanently docked in Oakland, CA; there was a guided tour that explained all about the ship and how it was used. No photos, unfortunately. I liked yours!

    From an ex-swabbies point of view, making any sailing vessel into a bar is a natural progression, following an unwritten natural law. It preserves the historic value of the vessel and the people who imbibe.

    Lighthouses are generally in photogenic surroundings, have historic, romantic, and rustic appeal, change appearance and personality with the weather, and most are realtively easy to shoot.
