Sundown by the beach...Ahh, I really enjoy setting up for this kind of shots. But, honestly---who wouldn't? Everything is just amazingly beautiful and peaceful. Enjoy!!!
Sitting atop a small promontory in the southeastern municipality of Maunabo, the Punta Tuna Lighthouse has been alerting mariners of their proximity to the coast since it was first lit back in 1892.
Similar in shape and form to other such structures found around Puerto Rico, its original third order Fresnel lens could project light some eighteen nautical miles away from the island. Enjoy!!!

Today I give you a shot taken just after sundown. Enjoy!!!
That seem to be saying my son Alejandro as he does a stunt dive to the pool. This one I took while on vacation and he was showcasing his acrobatic talents in the pool area. Enjoy!!!
Look Mom...I'm Flying!
The Maunabo or Punta Tuna lighthouse entered service on November 18, 1892. It was designed by Joaquín Gisbert and constructed by Adrián Duffaut over the promontory known as Punta Tuna or Punta de la Tuna, at the southeastern tip of the island. The building measures 91 feet long by 41 feet wide and was originally painted white with dark-gray details. Its twin was the first Aguadilla lighthouse, from which it only differed by its color and by the shape of the tower’s cornice. The tower is octagonal, 43-feet tall, and placed at the center of the building.
