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.

  1. I love the black & whites. They look like old, antique photos. The reflections are pretty,but on my computer, they have a bit too much of a mechanical look to them. Quite a bit of difference from the way the water looks in your originals. To me, none of the reflected ones can even compare to your originals. They stand alone! Thanks for sharing!
