I've been thinking of starting this thread for some time now. I love lighthouses and thought others may like to share their lighthouse photos. It's hard to say what draws me to them, whether it's their strength, solitude, quaintness, history or fascinating designs. I've started this thread with a few photos of the smaller, lesser known lights. I invite you to add your own lighthouse photos here. The Drum Point light is a screw pile lighthouse that was rescued from slow destruction by vandals after decommissioning in 1962. It now stands at the Calvert Marine Museum in Maryland, where it was fully restored. The pretty little Roanoke Marshes Light in Manteo, North Carolina. The Ocracoke Light on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. Built in 1822, this light is still an active aid to navigation and is the second oldest operating light on the Outer Banks.
