If you think about the incredible dangers sailors have faced one of the most severe is trying to make landfall on a treacherous coastline. Lighthouse are built in remote dangerous locations. They are hard to construct requiring massive amounts of building materials. They are also tall dangerous structures to build. Lighthouses are located in lonely places where the men and women lived who were employed to keep the lights going and to spot ships in danger.
We have a number of websites to help you get started. Use them as a starting point. If you find a lighthouse that calls to you, a second search will probably turn up many more photos of the same structure, taken from different angles, at different times of the day and in different seasons. The choices are rich.
If you’re up for a thrill try googling “lighthouse, huge wave photo”. There is an entire sub- genre featuring lighthouses being struct by epic waves during fearsome storms. It all adds to the mystic, making us realize what incredible structures they are.
