Florida Vacation - Lighthouses

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.

Here's the pictures of lighthouses I saw from my vacation in Florida, they are all resized and I'm sorry that they are all not the same size, many were taken distantly and I cropped them instead of resizing.
Alligator Reef
These two views are from the private beach of the beach house we stayed in (Karapan on this page: http://www.trecorentals.com/properties_islamorada.cfm)
Image
Taken when the cloudy weather provided a very clear view of the lighthouse
Image
The normal view
Biloxi
We stopped in Biloxi, MS on our way to Florida and I had to visit the lighthouse
Image
The lighthouse is still closed and the doorway is boarded over
Image
An American Flag hangs from the gallery and the lighthouse has a 5th Order Fresnel Lens
Carysfort Reef
Image
Distant view from Glass Bottom Boat tour of Molasses Reef
Hen & Chickens Shoal
You could barely make it out from the house, it's 7 miles northeast of Alligator Reef. With Binoculars it looked like a black stick but it's the right structure. I circled it so you could see it
Image
Key West
I climbed the Key West Lighthouse (more pics later in a separate thread) while in Key West, this view came from the back porch of the Keepers House
Image
Molasses Reef
This view came from the glass bottom boat tour I saw Carysfort Reef from
Image
Key Largo
This view came from the same tour as it was leaving the marina. This lighthouse was privately built and features the lantern room from the former Rebecca Shoal Lighthouse.
Image
Pacific Reef Lantern Room
The lantern room from the Pacific Reef lighthouse is a prominent feature of Islamorada's Founders Park.
Image
Sand Key
This view is from the gallery of the Key West Lighthouse
Image
Sombrero Key
Sorry for the blur, it was taken through a car window traveling down the 7 Mile Bridge. I circled the lighthouse.

I'll post more pictures later

Zack,

How far offshore are those reef lights ? ... and thanks for posting those shots ...
Believe those who search for the truth ...
Doubt those who find it ...

They're a ways out there, I estimated Alligator Reef atleast 5 miles away from the shore, Molasses Reef was a 45 minute boat ride from the Marina. It should have some stats at LighthouseFriends
