Ditto! This is a great place for taking lighthouse fence shots, too.

Thanks Stephen! 8)

'Beautiful shot, Stephen! In addition to many other nice things about that photo, I do like those contrasting shadows on that fence. It adds a pleasant uniqueness to the composition!
Thanks for posting it!

great photo. I enjoyed the blue skies. Haven't seen those here in CT much this winter. It's been a gray sky type of season

Thanks guys! I am glad you liked it. I have others that I will share along the way. I ran in to a snaffu with my site last night that I will have to fix first before I can share the others.

Thanks Peter!

I have every thing taken care of now. It turned out to be less difficult/time consuming as I thought it was going to be.

Stephen,

Thanks for posting the latest pictures ...

I liked them all ... I liked both window shots ... I especially liked that the "frames" around them were not square, that they were almost shield-like in shape, adding character and uniqueness ... I also like the shadows they threw on the tower.

Also, appears you were leaking blue sky by the second ... I was wondering why the very first post was so blue yet the dual naked tree shot along the shoreline that you posted was so sky gray. This sequence of shots explain it.

Thanks again ... they were really good, as usual.

Nice "closeups" of those windows, Stephen. (A little "Georgian" influence, there)

Brent,

You mentioned a "Georgian" influence here ... prior, at OMP, you mentioned "a little Jacobean" touch ...

To me, fortunately, architecture is visual ...
To me, unfortunately, architecture is also much ignorance ...

You know how I've waxed about Twin Lights, about OMP, about White River ... Is there a website, or maybe a concise volume just about a tad above the "... for Dummies" series, to highlight and delineate some of the styles I see?

That's a good question, Barry. If there is such a "specialized" website out there, I haven't found it.
With that said, however, there are a number of sites which, in passing, mention a particular type of style (or arch. influence), but, since it isn't a main "characteristic" (no pun intended) of the structure, there isn't much said about it....which is understandable.
As you know, most lights (in one form or another) are broken down into catagories such as "screwpile" (cottage-type) or "intergral", etc., etc. To break it down further would probably not be noteworthy, in most cases, to the average reader because many are hybreds with unique little details to that particular light only.
Some lights, like Ship John Shoal, Admiralty Head, OMP or Toledo Harbor (to name a few) are so distintive that the "influence" has to be mentioned because of their obvious dominant design characteristic.
I've often considered doing a website (and book) on the "Architecture of Lights" using some fine photography, including micro and macro (by others) and with archival drawings (historical records) with supplemental drawings and text by myself, and others, to build a cashe of LH data centered around that very topic.
Now, whether that would be of interest to the LH community, in general, remains to be seen. IMHO, the endeavor (a book) would be highly risky. A website, on the other hand, would be interesting.

Brent

P.S. On reason that I enjoyed your topic "Panes" so much is that it extracted from the norm and reduced it to a very specialized area which is always seen but seldom recognized. :)
There are other specialized areas such as iron-work detailing, brass, brickwork, etc. which fall into that same catagory.

'Sorry....I didn't mean to off on a tangent..... :D
