I love this shot! Lighthouses are always great subjects. #2378065

Katja Z February 05, 2006

Thank you, Joshua and Kristy.

The picture was taken a with a regular nikkor 18-70mm lens that came with the camera when I purchased it. I had to sell my F100 on ebay to be able to buy this one, still saving for any extras (like a flash)...
