Point Tuna Light Station
We planned a short trip to the Punta "Point" Tuna Light Station. I wanted to see a lighthouse on the Caribbean Sea (& get my feet in the it!)

Walking from the parking lot to the lighthouse lined with these beautiful palms
Black & white Palms
I like to experiment & thought this would look interesting in black & white.
I used LR5 (Lightroom 5) Black & White low contrast preset.

This building was at the edge of the palm-lined walkway before you get to the Light.

Interesting old Lighthouse. I would have loved to go inside, but it isn't in good shape & was locked up.

A beautiful & hot day at Punta Tuna
Door to Lighthouse
I liked the grain of the wood.

Opening in Door
The small lookout opening in the door, quite weathered. Interesting texture & mystery. What could be inside, or who could be looking out!
I'd love to investigate the lamp area.
Blowing in the Wind
The wind is always blowing. A look back at the ruins & the path
It was interesting to me to see coconuts in the palms. In Hawaii, they don't let the coconuts grow in the trees. They do not want them to fall on people.
Palms in Black & White
The palms on our walk down to the coastline.
I used LR5 black & white low contrast preset.
Coast view thru the Palms
A glimpse of the beach, ocean & rock outcropping where the Lighthouse sits on.
Brightly lit Palms
I love the "overexposed" look - getting ready to emerge from the shaded path onto the beach
Palms in Black & Whtie
I love this in black and white.

Punta Tuna Light Overlooking Sea & Coast
I never tire of scenery like this. The surf is too dangerous to swim here.
Beacon of Safety
Beacon in Black and White
Rugged mix of nature & human ingenuity

Overlooking the Caribbean Sea
It's easy to believe one is on a deserted island when standing here. Looking east.
My Foot in Caribbean Water!
It was so refreshing on this hot & humid day.
Entering the shady path from the beach
One last look at this beautiful place
