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.

Let's start with a silhouette of this one...

Al seems to be the only one getting any of these the past day or two. Any of the rest of you trying?

I can fairly safely say it's not a Michigan light... Probably not from this recent Ohio trip...

Beats me.

Nope, definitely not an Ohio lighthouse. It sits probably 30-40 feet above the water level and I was part way down to the water shooting up to get more of the clouds and the silhouette if that helps any.

Okay, let me give it a try. The remarkable elements of this tower are a square balcony and a few feet higher a round balcony. The point of view is different from most photos (but that is what makes Gary such an extraordinary photographer) so it is hard to compare it with the photos in my books. I go for Thirty Mile Point, New York, one of the first electrified lighthouses (1885) and for a long time the strongest light on Lake Ontario.

And you would be right, Frans, and thanks for the kind words.

Here are a couple of shots taken at the same time. The first one is from the opposite angle of the posted shot that was intentionally thrown into silhouette. The second is from the front looking toward Lake Ontario.

The second is taken from the same place as the one I fond in my book. The lower part of the dwelling is hidden behind the tree, while on Gary's photo it is on the foreground of the house. The position of the tower, behind (on Gary's photo at the side of) the house made me conclude this might be the right one.
