Perfect pictures. I love the contrast of brilliant white and deep blue, it makes me nostalgic of Greece...

Exactly my thoughts as I looked at the response to the prompt and came in here to comment. The blue and white combination is so gorgeously Greek. Lighthouses have some sort of pull on the human brain: shape, colour and purpose I guess.

Nice response to the prompt, Tash.

Blue and White. The colors of my high school in Macon, Georgia in the early 60's. Nice shots and nice memories.

Very nice, Tash! Nothing better than a lighthouse and I love how to did the partial part of this challenge.

Nice shadow shots.'~) You did a meme and didn't even know it. The light house and the vista of RAT Beach are stunners. I hope you have digital photo frame so all of these beauties are there for you to see anytime you wish it. You love in a beautiful place, Tash.
