Congratulations to the 14 U.S. Lighthouse Society Photographers whose photos were chosen for the 2018 Lighthouse Society Calendar — Robert Kausch, Ed Boesiger, John J. Young, James Hill, Mindy Margaritis, Dan Reiss, Elizabeth A. Burns-Hausrath, Lisa Mintz, Dave Waller, Rich Buckner, Sharon Jones, Ken Dinsmore, Bill Hammond, and Vivianne Gifford. The 14 images selected for this 2018 calendar represent a variety of construction types, geographical locations, and artistic perspectives. Each photographer provided a quote about the subject of the photo or his or her experience taking it. Their love of lighthouses is apparent in both their images and the captions they provided. We appreciate both their talent and their enthusiasm for the subject matter!
For those considering a membership or gift membership, sign up before December 8th and receive a free calendar. We appreciate your support of lighthouses!
