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.

Spring Blossoms

 If one looks close enough, beauty can be found almost anywhere.  The following is a random selection of blossoms found in our own humble yard.  In my busy life, I can walk right past true beauty without noticing.  I hope they bring a little light and beauty into your day.  Enjoy!

  1. These are just beautiful! Our daffodils have long since past, seeing yours reminds me of missing mine. I love the Iris, something rather elegant in those. I've been working on rebuilding my own bed, the resident ground hogs have feasted through the patch. It is a sorry sight indeed! All your photos are lovely! I enjoy your blog!
