    I just plain love pictures of lighthouses, they are almost always in a great setting next to an ocean somewhere in the world and they come in all shapes, colors and sizes. So please find every great lighthouse picture you can and post it in this thread.

    I'll start with lighthouses in rough seas.

    Rose Blanche Lighthouse: This granite lighthouse, dating back to 1871, was constructed on the site of a famous shipwreck, which was reimagined into a novel Ann and Seamus by author Kevin Major. In 1828, an Irish immigrant ship ran aground and broke apart during a raging storm. For three full days a 17-year-old girl named Ann Harvey saved passengers and crew by bravely ferrying them to land through fog and lashing wind in a 12-foot skiff.

    I always tend to think of lighthouses as being tube or cone shaped but there are really stylish art deco style one's that much stronger sharper lines, rather than all the round ones, out there as well:

    Boon Island, Maine


    Let's hope this is high tide during a very severe storm.

    Belle Isle, North End, Labrador, Canada

    Iron tower encased in reinforced concrete with six flying buttresses (it ain't comin' down in any storm!).



    ###

    Giglio Porto, Isola del Giglio, Italia
    ... and the Costa Concordia (1,000 feet from the harbor entrance and the lighthouses)
    ... and its lifeboats moored to the red lighthouse jetty on the right

    I must be a bad person.

    I really, really love most of these photographs. I look, I admire ....

    A most amazing lighthouse/memorial



    Location
    : Madang, New Guinea.
    Built: 1959.
    Status: Active.
    Height: 27 m (89 ft).
    Construction: Octagonal concrete tower with four buttresses and lantern. The entire lighthouse is white. Site open, tower closed.


    Special note
    : The lighthouse is a memorial to the Coastwatchers, volunteers organized by the Royal Australian Navy during World War II to spy on Japanese ship and troop movements on the coasts of New Guinea and nearby islands. The building was designed to resemble a torch, but engineers added the buttresses for stability. The resulting tower looks more like a rocket than a torch.
    We salute you!

    Here's an interesting read about the Coastwatchers.

    Can't Miss This One!



    Name: Phare du Créac'h
    Location: Île d'Ouessant, Bretagne, France
    Built: 1863
    Height: 54.85m (180 ft)
    Special notes:
    • Identifies the western end of the English Channel (la Manche)
    • The world's most powerful lighthouse at 500,000,000 maximum candlepower (for reduced visibility)
    • Maximum luminous range of over 300 miles (I assume in clear weather at maximum luminosity)
