LIGHTHOUSES: A PHOTOGRAPHIC LIBRARY

OF THE MOUNTAINS



You see, I did this for my mother because she just loves lighthouses and I was fortunate enough to spend a weekend in South Portland Maine at the beginning of fall of 2000. So I drove the entire coast one Saturday and Sunday in September with a little map that showed where many were. I found 13 of them. I am still photographing as I find them, and I AM actively seeking them out. 

All the lighthouse sites have a web page with at least one image. I will get to the maps one day. When a map does show up, move your cursor up to the title area while the map loads. Then when you can see all of it, drag the mouse over the map and a second map will load showing a closer look at the road detail. 
 
So, just click on one of the links below and find out for yourself what this place looks like. They're listed in the order that I visited them.  If you have followed the progress of this site, you have probably figured out that this has gone a little bit beyond something I do for my mother, now. So I'll keep traveling as long as my job sends me somewhere else. And believe me, more of these wonderful symbols of our maritime history, will fall victim to my cameras. 

I used Microsoft Encarta 2000 for the regional maps. The maps for each lighthouse were obtained from Street Atlas USA software by Delorme. I got factual information from this web site:   National Park Service, and you can look at this Bibliography for the books I used for research. The rest of it comes from my own experience. And I know this question is burning in your mind, "Are these images available as Greeting Cards?"
