Default Hawaii Lighthouses

This is a picture of the Makapu'u lighthouse on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. It happens to be one of the shortest (in height) active lighthouses in the world. This is perhaps due to the fact that it is perched on a high cliff above the waves.

This is only one of about six lighthouses in all of Hawaii. That is surprising considering we are an island state with lots of dangerous reefs. There are several other light towers and beacons that purists would argue are not lighthouses.

The picture is more documentary than creative.



The remaining pics about four of the six lighthouses can be seen at:

Enjoy. Aloha

I lIke it . Love the way the path with it's rail leads you into the pic and the way it disappears behind the rocks to add an air of mystery ?

Stef,

In line with your predilection for mystery, I just took a closer look and saw what appears to be the outline of a person standing on the left side of the lighthouse platform. Hmmm....

Thanks for your comments.

Whack on a polarising filter next time, will make the sea and rockside much less 'glarey', and will give you much more vibrant image. Longer exposure with polariser though so make sure its nice and bright.

Photodude,

I think you're right. I've been dawdling about getting a polarizing filter. Just might. I tried some Photoshop post shot stuff to reduce the glare and it does work but I think a polarizing filter is probably easier.

Nice shot Mr. Hawaii! I always thought that Hawaii was sand and sea. This is something else...

Selvin, you've got to stop posting these pics. Some of us are stuck in these cubes staring at computer monitors listening to the ambulance sirens blaring outside. It's a long way to the beach from here and it doesn't even compare to the beaches you've got over there.

So if you want to drive some of us to the brink of sanity, just keep posting those picks, buster.

Please, think of the rest of us!
