Couple shots of Morris Island

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.

Seasentinel and I went to SC recently and got pics of this amazing lighthouse. :)

That's a pretty desolate looking spot, thanks for showing us more views of it.

Looks like you had a rather clear day since you can see Sullivan's Island light across the way in your first photo.

Tim, that's a horrible screen name 8O , but you did shoot some nice photos! :D

I saw a program on television once that showed Morris Island as it was before it was destroyed by a hurricane. It was really a lovely place, and it makes me sad every time I see a current photo. I know there are plans for restoration work, but it will never be as it once was.

Great shots, Tim! I believe that they are supposed to begin work
on it, next month.

The story Michelle and I heard is that when they restore it, they are only planning on fixing the lighthouse itself. Not the beach and keeper's house, etc. ( just hearsay of course) :roll:

I think it might be a bit tough to rebuild an entire island, Tim, although I'm sure it could be done! It will suffice to have the tower receive some badly needed TLC. I will look forward to it!!!! :D
