    Cape Lookout

    New to the forum. Shot this one last year of Cape Lookout thru the side window of the plane (sorry for the fuzziness, the pilot wouldn't let me stand out on the wing for the shot).

    I can relate to that.

    Point Loma and Point Pinos were very similar in design. Thanks for the great shots, and the new and old.

    Verrrry interesting... a lighthouse in Utah Who woulda thunk it?

    Funny... It's not on the lighthouse registry...

    must be expecting a flood of biblical proportions.
