Lighthouses are not only important historical structures representing our maritime heritage, they are also architectural wonders. Located in stunning picturesque locations, they are inspirational in nature and are often lovingly memorialized by all kinds of artists including writers, photographers, and film makers.
Simply “being” at a lighthouse and enjoying its surrounding property is a deeply meaningful experience to most, and something that creates a lasting memory. This year we challenged our members to present their best photos in seven different categories.
Here are the photos that were selected for the 2019 calendar:
