Absolutely spectacular, Ken! Oh don't worry, your lighthouses and piers never grow old. They are always unique and each one is breathtaking in a very different way. You're AWESOME!

The B&W emphasizes the cold geometry of the image, near the absolute perfection, fascinating.

Love it. LOVE it. Creamy smooth tones, razor sharp lines, starburst filter on the lights. Sure to finish high.
