Celebrating National Lighthouse Day!

Here at Weigold Photography, we love lighthouses!  On this date in 1789 Congress passed legislation which provided for the establishment and support of lighthouses and other navigational aids.  We’re reasonably sure they’ve been a point of visual interest since the first was installed!   In celebration of the day, we’ve put together this gallery of our lighthouse images.  We hope you enjoy them!

Please Support Our Underwater Sombrero Project!

Underwater Sombrero is a photographic book project by Weigold Photography featuring the amazing coral reefs surrounding Sombrero Key.   Through our project, we plan to document the beauty of these reefs and their inhabitants in a hard bound dust jacketed publication which will be a handsome addition to any coffee table or library.  We’re using the Kickstarter funding platform to try to get our project off the ground.   We launched our 30 funding drive on September 5, 2012, and we have to have pledges for at least $8000 by October 5, 2012 for our project to succeed.  It’s an all or nothing venture!  We’re not asking for donations.  There are incentives for supporting the project starting at $1 (one dollar)!

The direct Kickstarter link is here, you can like the project on facebook, follow it on Twitter, and we also have a dedicated project page.  Please check them out, spread the word, and perhaps, pledge your support!  Thanks!
