    I do like lighthouses . . . I regret that before leaving Michigan I failed to go all around the Lower and Upper Peninsulas and photograph every one of them (got me some, but not many).

    And I too support Wikipedia, and contribute. An amazing and underappreciated resource.

      They (Lighthouses) always seem to leave a lasting impression on me. Their structure, historical purpose and technology, and even romanticism… I even traveled quite far to NOT see one, due to near zero visibility fog – Point Reyes in California. But IT”S impression was as awesome as others. Thanks for the comment and Wiki support. M

    Wow – they sure were built to last! I’ve never been overly interested in lighthouses, but now, viewing your post, quite a few questions popped into my mind, to learn more – heading over to wikipedia…. LOL 🙂

      The do make an ethereal sound . . . not sure about romantic, but they do wipe out a lot of birds.

        Certainly not romantic for the birds! I would believe lighthouses have done some birds in also, as is the case of bright lights on city skyscrapers – sometimes turned off during migration seasons.

        I did not know they turned off bright lights during migrations . . . I can see the case for both . . . the lights off won’t attract birds, but on the other end, you can’t avoid something you can’t see.

        . . . unless they travel when the moon is well lit, which, if I remember correctly, most tend to do.
