Just got a copy of the new guidebook from Ray Jones and Bruce Roberts, Lighthouses of Maine. I had some of my own photos in here as well as being honored with a cover shot!

Thanks, I'm trying to get some from the publisher for the Portsmouth group (since we're at the Maine gateway, people at our open houses ask about Maine lighthouses all the time!)

But if I can't get too many, you can get them from B&N, Borders, Amazon, etc. for the same retail price.

Unfortunately, Bruce didn't have a lot of current shots for the way downeast Maine lights, and they used a lot of the Shanklin's aerial shots. Though they're good, I think a guidebook should really be angles that the visitor would normally see from.

Ron Foster from NELL and APLS also has some, as usual, great shots in the book as well.
