Opposite ends of the temperature range

A forum to post any lighthouse pictures you'd like others to see. Feel free to talk about lighthouse photography. Lighthouse-related photos (such as LSS and lenses) are also welcome.

While Hersh has been out braving the frozen beaches at St Joe, some of us have wandered farther away...

...and have been shooting barefoot in shorts and a t-shirt :!:

This shot is one taken of El Morro, the fort that guards the entrance to San Juan harbor built in the 1600's with the lighthouse atop the battlements, from a mile or two off shore, which is probably a view from the sea that most who visit the light don't get to see. The shot was taken a few minutes after sunrise last week.

Shot from closer at 200 mm leaving San Juan harbor...

I have been through El Morro a couple of times on other trips to San Juan on business but didn't tour the fort this trip.

Good pictures as usual, Gary, but I think I prefer the second one just a little bit more. I like the architecture of the top of it.
