Roanoke River--many photos

Just got back from a lighthouse trip? Have you just finished photographing every aspect of one lighthouse? Post the pictures here! Lighthouse-related photos are also welcome.

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for the great photos of Roanoke River. We were there last year and it has really deteriorated since just last November. We plan a trip again this year.

Doesn't that Fresnel lens make you just about cry? I wanted to find a way to drive over there and rescue it. I got slammed by someone last year when I said that because there are more important lighthouses to rescue...it just seems like such a tragedy to see an irreplaceable thing like that big lens just turning into junk while dopes argue about money.

I cannot wait to be back at the Outer Banks. Thanks for giving me a brief smell of the ocean. The photos you took of Hatteras from the beach were almost like the old Hatteras before as I heard one guy say..."Before it got Wal-marted."

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Yes, it is a shame that the entire structure is sitting there going in to ruins. Christina and I were talking and we both agreed that if we win the lottery (we play on ocassion), that we will buy it an move it somewhere and take care of it. :D

I received a negative comment when making some statements about this light as well one time, so I haven't bothered to do so since. Yes, there are some other lights out there who need more help, but if you are talking about the lighthouse that I am thinking about, atleast someone is giving is some support and doing some maintenance to it, where as this one just sits. Anyway, getting off my soap box before I get started.

Thanks for the kind words about our photos and enjoy your trip.
