    Don't think this lightouse is in use anymore. It is part of the historic display at Fort Cornwallis on Penang Island.

    This is the Barnegat Lighthouse!!! This was taken Sept 2006. It is in LBI (Long Beach Island), NJ

    This is not far from where I live, I go there on my free time to walk around.

    Great shot of the Barnegat Lighthouse; really shallow water going out that channel. Love to watch the birds standing on the sand barges there.

    Beautiful lighthouses all. I still drop in on this site (and the Nikon board) from time-to-time to see what's going on. I'm glad to see that lighthouses still attract photographers everywhere.

    I'm also taking this opportunity to repost my favorite lighthouse at Point Pinos in Pacific Grove, CA. I served as one of the last Coast Guard lightkeepers before it was automated in the mid-1970's, and I went back to search-and-rescue duty, so it is a lifepoint for me.

    I have one like that out by my pool. They are only ones that you will find here in the Sanoran Desert...

    Love this shot

    Gerge,
    Nice shot, great composition. Too often we seem to forget that landscapes need a foreground, a middle and a background.
    Personally I'd photoshop the power pole and lines out, but that's minor.

    cheers

    Ya know, it's funny, but I did remove the old power pole but it actually changed the personality of the picture in a negative way, so I left it in.

    Probably more my personal preference, but this shot has been pretty popular for 11 x 17 prints as well.

    South Foreland Lighthouse

    I never thought I'd get to post in this thread. However, we went on a short coastal walk from Dover in Kent & came across this little gem. It is the South Foreland Lighthouse perched on top of the white cliffs & owned by the National Trust. It is a Victorian lighthouse & a climb up the tower gives spectacular views across the English Channel. It was apparently the site of some of Marconi's wireless experiments and Faraday's first electrically-powered light. A very nice lady gave us a guided tour & lots of fascinating info about the place. Well worth the 2 mile walk along the cliff top to get there.

    Now that is one that we haven't seen. A nice shot as well. Thanks for a little history, and finally thanks for posting it.

    Unfortunately I've only seen Dover from the air. One of these days...
