    John, this is great. I, have loved that lighthouse for 28 years. I have several photographs of it posted. Howard Simpson also loves lighthouses...this one in particular.
    He has some fantasic images posted. Yours is very well done, indeed. It is beautiful. It was repainted, you know, to represent what it looked like in the early 20th century. I have many shots made when it was all white...the way I think it should be still today.

    Adam said it: "Surreal". Paradise does seem to need a kind of haziness about it because it seems like something intangible. Great job!

    This picture came up under your newest posting today. The lighting still impresses me..It very much fits the theme..I just lost my Hot for paradise yesterday and re-posted another one for the theme...Odd as it sounds...I am glad that I lost the hot on my previous entry because I found something else that fits the theme much better:)
