PhotoHunt#19 Nautical

This is some sort of a lighthouse near the port of Dapa, Siargao Island, Surigao, Philippines. At first, I could not make it out from the distance especially that it was partially covered in the early dawn fog at that time. It was only as we got near that I realized it has a light on top that could serve as a beacon or warning for the ships.

And, here is it's closer shot.

Very cool. Love lighthouses -- think they're beautiful and then there's of course the important roles that they play.

Two beautiful shots with great feeling in them. I think my favorite of the two is the second though. The solitary buoy standing guard in the expanse of water.

Nicely done!

Because we cruise in a rocky area we have lots of buoys similar to the one in your pictures to keep us out of danger. I invite you to come see my nautical cruise in Coastal BC. - Margy
