Lighthouses of Ontario


This is a special section being featured on I have always been fascinated by Canadian Lighthouses, especially the ones that are painted in the red and white color scheme.

I had the opportunity in the summer of 1999 to get to Ontario and photograph several lighthouses along Lake Ontario and Lake Erie even though I was living in North Carolina at the time. In late 1999 I moved back home to Buffalo, NY so now I will be able to cover more of Ontario.
