Yet Another UNCONTEST ...

A forum to post any lighthouse pictures you'd like others to see. Feel free to talk about lighthouse photography. Lighthouse-related photos (such as LSS and lenses) are also welcome.

First ... kudos ... pats on the back ... and maybe even kisses on each cheek ... for Gary Martin for coming up with the idea for the "UNCONTEST." What a positive channeling of creativity and pride being displayed on the forums!!!

Having said that ... once before I posted about windows ... I love them and think, as in OMP, Twin Lights, White River and so many others, it just adds to the overall evocative feel of the lighthouse ...

From an overcast morning on the OBX on the way to OBLHS conclave in the fall of 2004, here's the first contribution ...

Since windows work both ways - I'll start with looking out...

Excellent idea Barry, this was an interesting topic before, and I can see that we're already eclipsing it here.

First, here's one that I just posted in the spiral staircase thread, but the window is a prominent feature, so here it is as a window shot. Assateague Island light.

Image




And I know you enjoyed this one before Barry, a view out the gallery level porthole windowat Old Mackinac Point. That's the 1,000 foot tug-barge Presque Isle passing under the Mighty Mac upbound. I tried to time it so I was in the lantern to get this shot, but the timing wasn't quite right.

Image




And one more from OMP, also as requested by Barry I believe. This is a view of the neat looking vertical windows on the tower from the inside. This also a dual purpose shot, with the staircase a prominent feature, but I won't dual post this one. :D

I have a similar shot to Al's taken from Rockland Breakwater that I thought was fairly unique! I should have KNOWN better, especially with THIS group!!! :lol:

I would love to post more of my own photos on these threads if I had a good way to host them. I wasn't pleased with the results of the last site I tried. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the compliment on the idea for coming up with the "UNCONTEST" Barry, but I'll pass on the kiss on the cheeks! LOL.... You really wouldn't like my beard anyway [-X

It's a stuffed cat

Made a mistake. It is a cat but not a stuffed one. It is a cut out of a cat
