Lighthouse Dreams

Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Have you ever been into a lighthouse? I haven’t but spending the night in one is on my bucket list. Lighthouses have always captivated me. Their isolation and position on rocky outcrops just adds to their mystery and beauty. Did you know that lighthouses could become a thing of the past? Apparently, advances in modern technology mean that ships can navigate the coastlines all by themselves and no longer need the guiding light of the mighty lighthouse. Isn’t that just the saddest thing?

  3. These images are incredible! I got to climb to the top of a lighthouse last summer. Going up the rickety staircase was a little scary but the views from the top more than made it worth it. I hope you get to visit one soon!

  12. Stunning photos of lighthouses. Last year we were on a boat trip on the Pacific Ocean at the coast of Canada and I spied a lighthouse with a kind of rope/pully attached to it and leading to the water. I asked the boat driver about it and he said that when the storms are really bad and the lighthouse operator can't leave, another boat will come by with supplies and it will be sent up via the pulley. Pretty cool, huh?

  13. Stunning pics..especially the ones at sunset and with the blue/green sky. I have never visited a lighthouse but they give the sense of having been around a very long time.
