Some images of places I've been. I love Newcastle. Go there quite often to get photos of the lighthouse or the area.

dcg0317,

I'm a sucker for lighthouse photos so I wished you had more detail of the lighthouse. It's almost lost against the sleek new behemoth ship.

The name Portsmouth conjures up as sorts of marine imagery. Perhaps because of the English town but even so Portsmouth USA doesn't need to take a back seat to the jolly old English town.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

Thanks yesterday and nhmomfor the comments, I do love the area and don't live to far from New Castle, lots of history.

Thanks selvin for your commrnts as well, here's a couple shots of the lighthouse, ( hope I'm not breaking the rules) hard to get shots because it's on the USCG property, and it's off limits.

Great shots, all! I don't think you are breaking any laws with your shots as long as you were shooting from public land. As for forum rules, some might say four photos exceeds the limit but I think I see it as two sets of two which uses your limit for one day.
