Posted In: Favourite Places

I love lighthouses, here are photographs showing some of the ones I have visited. Coming up 7 countries spread over Europe, Africa, Australia and North America.


Let’s start with two of my favourites, both in Maine, America. Above it’s Marshall Point Light and below Pemaquid Point.


Lighthouses Around The World


Why do I love lighthouses? Well they are usually in dramatic spots and often need tracking down, so it becomes a bit of an adventure to find them. I hope you enjoy looking at these lighthouse photographs.
