Wonderful shot Gene! Congratulations on your POTDI!!

I love the ocean, but I have not been there for awhile.
Is that a sister lighthouse in the background? #7829345

Nancy de Flon 8/8/2009 9:12:30 AM

Hello Gene, I love lighthouses and since I live on the East Coast this one isn't one that I'm familiar with or am ever actually likely to see. Thank you so much for sharing it in this beautiful photo. The colors and light look so natural; you've respected the lighthouse and its surroundings for what they are, haven't bumped it up to look like eye candy. Thank you! #7829646

Gene Spears 8/10/2009 3:42:28 AM

thanks everyone!! I really appreciate all of your comments. Kathy, I think that is some kind of boat signaling device in the distance, something less than an actual lighthouse. Thanks again - gene #7833888

Not sure how I missed this POTD! I love lighthouses and even collect a few. This is just so beautiful. The bright colors of the lighthouse are so striking against the deep blue of the sky/water. I would definitely have this one hanging on my wall! Wouldn't you know as much as I love lighthouses that I am living in a place where there is not a nearby lighthouse (except for a couple only reachable by boat). #8425004

Nancy de Flon 3/1/2010 2:57:07 PM

Hooray for lighthouses and hooray for you, Gene! Well done, congrats on being a finalist! #8425054
