My Favorite Lighthouse Poster

Jun 19, 2008
So, what are your favorite lighthouse posters. There are plenty different types to pick from. Different styles, different colors, different feelings, and plain and simple, many different lighthouses. You know, there is the very simple, but stereotypical Cape Cod lighthouse. Just looking at one of these, you can image the sand getting stuck in your toes, and the mournful cries of seagulls fighting the wind and each other in their quest for scraps left by the sea. It's a pleasant and calming image to be sure. Assuming of course, that you like the water and the beach. Who doesn't after all.

Then of course there is the much more dramatic images of lighthouses that have been popular as of late. A lonely light house on a desolate rock somewhere in the eerie and dark ocean. A simple beach on light belching out it's warning. What makes the prints so dramatic, is not so much the lighthouse itself, but the waves pounding onto the building and the rocks at it's base. Big, huge monstrous waves. Waves that practically engulf the entire building. As if they're trying to extinguish the lighthouse beacon, to make it easier for them to entice more ships to their doom. As if the light house is all that's standing between them, and a tasty meal of shipwrecked sailors.

Of course, the lighthouse is a might adversary, and not one to be trifled with. It knows it's duty, and stands up to pounding wave after pounding wave. Year after year, generation after generation. What I have to wonder, is what it would feel like to be the lighthouse keeper inside one of the buildings, when the storms fury is at it's fullest. Probably makes you wonder a little about your chosen career. I know I do sometimes, and I don't have 50 foot waves crashing into my walls. Lighthouse keepers are of sterner stuff I suppose.

And what about the photographers that snap pictures of those forces of nature, that get turned into such dramatic lighthouse posters? What I want to know, is where are they while all this is going on. Hopefully on shore somewhere safe. I can't imagine they'd be on a visual and still hold a camera still enough to get a shot good enough to be developed into a poster. Even the the best digital image editor couldn't fix those shots. I do I couldn't, but I certainly do enjoy the final result.
