Cape Horn Lightstation, Cape Horn, Chilie
This light, Faro Cabo de Hornos, is the most southerly lighthouse in the world. Built on Horn Island at historic Cape Horn, it is manintained by the Chilean government. It was built in the early 1990's. The photo, unfortunately a distant view, was taken in March 2009.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
