Punta Brava Light, Montevideo, Uruguay
This light, also known as Punta Carretas Light, is on the Rio de Plata (River Plate) east of the downtown area of Montevideo. It was built in 1876 and is well maintained and is open to the public for a small fee. Photos 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).
