Finalists for “Reflection / Unusual Perspective”

Thanks to all the Lighthouse Society photographers who submitted images for the “Refection / Unusual Perspective” category of our 2019 Calendar Contest. After careful review, we are pleased to announce the five finalists.

New Canal, LA, 2018, by David Zapatka, who noted “We had to rig a large piece of material on an elongated (12 foot) pole and the lighthouse keeper held it in place to shield the foreground cove from harsh light coming from a bulkhead streetlight. Without doing this, the light prevented us from getting the reflection on the water. I’d photographed here the night before and was frustrated by the bright lamp. The keeper’s solution was the long pole usually used to retrieve floating items off the water.”
Saginaw River Range, MI, 2016, by Russ Katje, who noted the photo was taken from a kayak.
Boston Harbor, MA, 2012, by Rick Schneider, who noted “There was a beautiful reflecting pond opportunity, but I had to get down on my knees, low to the ground, to catch this reflection.”
Cape May, NJ, 2013, by Ed Hewitt
Spurn Lightship, Hull, England, taken by Yvette Dills on a 2017 U.S. Lighthouse Society tour.

The deadline for our next category, “Sunrise / Sunset,” is April 30, 2018.  So get out your cameras and capture your favorite lighthouse in the magical light of dawn or dusk. The submission period for the following category, “Technology,” begins April 15 and ends May 30, 2018.

Goto for more information.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing your submissions!
