The Rincon lighthouse (El Faro de Punta Higuero, in Spanish) is situated on a bluff surrounded by a lovely park. The park offers a setting where visitors can relax and have great views of surfers, Desecheo Island, the sunset, and even whales (in season). A lighthouse has been standing at this same location since 1892. The original lighthouse, which was one of the many lighthouses built to help ships navigate the dangerous sea passage along the western coast of Puerto Rico, was damaged during an earthquake in 1918. It was made of brick with nice details and included a house for the lighthouse keepers family. Due to the damage caused by the earthquake, it had to be demolished, and the current 70-foot tall cylindrical tower was built in 1922.
Rincon Deniz Feneri (İspanyolca El Faro de Punta Higuero) güzel bir parkla çevrili bir kayalık üzerinde yer almaktadır. Park ziyaretçilere dinlenebilecekleri ve sörfçülerin, Desecheo Adasının, gün batımının, ve hatta (sezonda) balinaların muazzam görünümlerini izleyebilecekleri bir ortam sunmaktadır. Aynı yerde 1892 yılından bu yana bir deniz feneri bulunmaktadır. Porto Rikonun batı kıyısı boyunca gemilere tehlikeli deniz geçişi yolcuğunda yardımcı olmak için inşa edilen birçok fener biri olan orijinal deniz feneri, 1918 yılında bir depremde hasar gördü. Bu güzel ayrıntıları ile tuğladan yapılmıştı ve fener bekçisinin ailesi için bir ev içeriyordu. Depremin yol açtığı hasar nedeniyle, bunun yıkılması gerekti ve mevcut 70 metre uzunluğunda silindirik kule 1922 yılında inşa edildi.

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lighthouse with tall cylindrical tower and the site surrounded by the greenery. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and the beautiful color combination.
Have a good New Year for you and your family!

That's the saviour of many a seafarer that never fail to attract us the world over! I guess that this lighthouse has been automated by now, most of them have been converted? It's a cracking good image & interesting narrative with a good focal point, sharp in detail and colours - a picture has everything one can hope for and more. Wonderful infor shot, Well done. All the very best for the New Year

I like the fact you added the palm-trees branchs atop and side's of the thumbernail, it filled the relatively empty sky space on photo.
Nice managed the contrast on subjects: the light-tower and the park/garden area and especially the big shading tree.
Happy new year my friend,

an interesting and original point of view to the lighthouse. The view is clear, deep and inviting. I like very much the great space you gave to the cloudy sky and how you topped your composition with the graphical palm leaves. You managed light and contrast in a very apt and intriguing way, creating special colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, I wish health, love and a very happy year to you and your dear ones!

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see white lighthouse with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color & light. And, the floating clouds draw out an additional good atmosphere, too.
I've My photo from Sydney with my old Sigma 10-20mm lens (not full format, the new one is full format).
