100 - Oregon Lighthouses (PDF with color photos)
Photograph America Newsletter on Oregon Lighthouses
 
Nine lighthouses line the Oregon Coast, protecting mariners by warning passing ships of treacherous reefs and hidden shoals. One-hundred-and-fifty years ago, there was a great need to safeguard merchant vessels. Hundreds of sailing ships with primitive navigational aids ran aground before the first lighthouse or foghorn was built to mark harbor entrances or warn off ships too close to shore. Most of these lighthouses still stand and some continue to operate as warning beacons to passing ships. Dramatic headlands and rocky points where tall white towers raise their beacons high above swirling mists and sea spray make fascinating subjects for photographers traveling along America's most beautiful coastline.
