Lighthouses of the World

Lighthouses are perhaps one of the most beautiful man made structures along any given coast. They are often the subject of postcards and romantic visions of  a solitary light beckoning their captain’s return. These towering sentinels are as varied as the people that inhabit their surrounding lands and we at SALT wanted to begin gathering them as this special feature.


Over the winter, we asked readers to submit an image or two and few words about their favorite lighthouses along their local coastlines. We have had a great initial response as you can see in the gallery below. Thank you to all that have answered the initial calling!


But we don’t want to stop there. If you have a local (or favorite) lighthouse that you would like to share with us, please don’t hesitate to submit a photo and some words and we’ll add it to this feature.


So now, enjoy these reader-submitted lighthouses from around the world.
