Hello, this is Russ Rowlett, webmaster of the Lighthouse Directory, hosted at the University of North Carolina. This is a good photo of the Tajura Lighthouse, and I am hoping you will allow me to use the photo on the Directory's page for Libya. The Directory is an educational project, university-based and completely non-commercial, and it features hundred of photos for which people around the world have given their permission. I included a link to the photo. Please take a look; I hope you will think this is a fair use.

Hi Russ, permission granted and please feel free to use my photo in the Lighthouse Directory. I have another sightly more distant shot of this lighthouse that was taken on a subsequent trip in 11-2008 as well as a couple of shots that include the Tripoli Light as taken from one of the upper floors at the nearby Corinthian Hotel if you are interested. I feel fortunate to have been able to go there 3 times on business; not likely to be going there again any time soon given the current political situation, unfortunately.

Thank you; I changed the caption to include your permission. And yes indeed, I'm always glad to see additional photos.
