Lighthouses Windows 7 Theme is dedicated to beautiful lighthouses looking over the world’s seas and oceans. A lighthouse is a tower or building used to emit light from a system of lamps in order to provide navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or inland waterways. They are used to mark dangerous coastlines, reefs, shoals, sea islands etc. and can also be used in aerial navigation. Lighthouses have been used for thousands of years and the “Lighthouse of Alexandria” built between 280 and 247 BC was also one of the seven wonders of ancient world. However, the modern era of lighthouses started in the 18th century. The advent of modern lighthouse design and technology also started due to the increasing use of sea routes for commerce and travel in the middle ages. The newer lighthouses were better designed and advanced technology was used to make sure that the lights could be seen from a very long distance. However, lighthouse keepers still had to guard the lighthouses often in the wilderness of the seas. This problem was finally resolved when lighthouses began to be automated with the advent of electrification. Most lighthouses are automated nowadays with the help of solar-charged batteries and automatic lamp changers. This theme contains 10 high quality backgrounds of beautiful lighthouses. All of them are of 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and will fit very well into Windows 7 desktop and laptop screens of nearly all resolutions.
