I have set up this site as a means to share my photographs of lighthouses. Since retiring and finding more time to study photography, my interests have expanded a little. For some of my work other than lighthouses please enjoy my Facebook page at, John Shaw Photography. Come visit, enjoy, and 'LIKE' if you wish.

Also, for your enjoyment, I have provided a slideshow of our journey. To view it please use the link on the right under 'Site Navigation Tools'.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my efforts and use my site not only for information and education but also to provide directions for many enjoyable, inspirational visits to the beacons along our beautiful coas.

Flowers from My Daughter's House in Oregon

      Last fall my wife and I took a trip to Oregon to visit our daughter and her husband in Irrigon.  We went to meet our new granddaughter Ellie, whom they had just adopted from China.  While there, I took the time to shoot a few flower shots in her gardens.  I hope they brighten your day.  Enjoy!

Light at the End of The Tunnel

     This is a shot I took I took at a poplar tree far.  You can just barely see light at the end of the long opening between the rows of trees.  I think it is sort of neat. 

     If you enjoy these breaks I take from lighthouses, please leave a comment below.  Thanks and enjoy.
