Torre del Reloj, Barcelona, Spain
The Torre del Reloj lighthouse was constructed in the 1772 and is located on the Moll des Pescadors in the waterfront area of Barcelona, Spain. It is now a clock tower, however the top of the tower where the clock is located was formerly a light and gallery. The light has been inactive since the 1860's. Photos taken in September 2011.
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).
