May the Light Be With You!

Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co Wishes You a most Prosperous, Happy New Year!

A traditional and historic means of navigational aids, lighthouses have saved life and property from destruction from nature’s controlling force over human limited power. Built close to treacherous seas and windswept promontories, lighthouses provided visual and acoustic warnings to mariners to impending dangers. Quite often, before automation, lighthouses were manned by light keepers living lives of solitude and sacrifice to ensure that other people were safe. One of the last links to maritime history, lighthouses keep drawing crowds of visitors every year. A sign of hope, a sign of life, a sign of care, a sign of community and inter-dependance, lighthouses have been evocative symbols of mankind conquering nature, of perseverance and resoluteness.

The images in this post were taken in the week between Christmas and New Year in 2017, except for the Highland Light pictures taken in March 2017; the lighthouses are located in the States of Maine, Massachusetts and South Carolina; Maine is approximately 600 miles north of New York and South Carolina and Cape Hatteras approximately 700 miles south of New York. During the time of the shootings, temperatures in Maine were well below freezing; actually at 2 deg F (-16 deg C) at 7am EST on the morning of December 27th; the weather in South Carolina still cold but minimally sub-freezing.

We hope that you enjoy the pictures herewith and we sincerely hope that they bring light and hope and strength and inspiration to you and loved ones, at home and at work, in 2018!
