Hello friends!
I would like to introduce you my new internet site www.lightphotos.net. It's intended to make collection of photos of lighthouses around the world. Last years i've visited many of them due to my job, so i put it to the Internet. But looking in general i understood that many lighthouses became relict in epoch of electronic navigation. Many of them are currently being removed from operation and simply abandoned. So i think it's a good idea to take and store photos while they still exist.
The idea of the site is simular to our favorite shipspotting.com - everybody can register and upload photos free and unlimited.
So please if you are interesting in this project and want to participate in it - please have a look here. I will be appreciate for any feedback. If you don't want to participate, but have some photos of the lighthouses and can give me permission to upload it instead of you - simply send it to me via e-mail. Many thanks in advance.
PS I've got the permission to publish this topik (thanks, Derek) so please don't consider it as spam  Smiley

Alex Trabas is doing here a wonderfull job, maybe you can join him? Together we are strong. A part of my lighthouses are also in a picasa-album, i will complet it this winter.

Everybody many thanks for feedback and links!

Hans, i always glad to share some data, exchange photos, links etc. I think i will contact with Alex with some suggestion of data or link exchange. He's done a giant job in his site. But i think you can use your photos in several resources, not only in one site, so i will be happy if you'll find time to upload it to lightphotos as well, if you want of course  Wink
The only thing i want to say regarding such sites as Alex has. I reviewed many lighthouse galleries i found that all of them are based on the home page of one person who fill it and update it regularly. And if this person busy/not interesting anymore - site start to degrade very soon. There are many sites with photos, which are simply abandoned and will never updated anymore. That's the thing i'm trying to avoid. As you may be see, last years internet significally changed. Before it was based on "individuals" who created and supported own sites. Now we're living in Web2.0 times - everything now based on the communities, social networking, so users doesn't like simply read or watch, but prefer to participate in site life. That's what i tried to make - you can upload photo, add comments, speak with another users, rate another photos etc. And this is best way to keep site up-to-date - even if i'll stop to upload anything - site will be filled by another amateurs and this is great. I don't want to say something bad about another collections they are great and interesting, but things are changing and concepts which were good 10 years ago, now looks not optimal.
Ups, my message turned out too loooong, sorry about this  Smiley

Nice interesting site, I do have an image of Haulbowline lighthouse at the entrance to Carlingford Lough but as it was taken from a distance from a moving boat the quality might not suit, it can be viewed from http://i804.photobucket.com/albums/yy323/theoc81/Artemis30052010169.jpg?t=1325375055
