This is a "replica" of the lighthouse Les Eclaircieurs, from where Jules Verne got inspiration for his novel Lighthouse at the end of the world
The true one is isolated very far away, so for touristic reasons this one was built and given Jules Verne's name for the pleasure of people sailing the Beagle Channel
The photo was taken from a ship while doing a mini-cruise in a cloudy morning that from my point of view, add some mysterious at the place

Tierra del Fuego is one of most fascinating destinations that a traveller could ever visit, in this image are summarized some of its features.A sense of silence and loneliness (lighthouse is the symbol par excellence of loneliness) pervade looking at this picture.Although the colours are not vibrant, because the grey sky, this photo however has, thanks to a very good composition, a discreet charm.

Una composicion magnífica, con ese cielo tan nuboso que le da a la composicion cierto aire de dramatismo, que me resulta fantastico.
Un bonito POV bien elegido, con el faro a un lado de la imagen y ese larga perspectiva que nos ofrecen aquellas islas en la distancia.
Me gusta esta luz tamizada y el color amenazador del dia.
Que disfrutes del fin de semana, si pudiera te enviaria un poquito del calor que tenemos ahora por aqui.

This lighthouse fits well in this dramatic and sombre landscape, really at the end of the world! The cloudy sky gave to the photo the peculiar atmosphere of the Tierra del Fuego... A very good composition with the lighthouse to the right and the far away islands in the background. Lucky you found the fine reflection in the sea.
Did you read the book: "Mundo del fin del mundo" by Luis Sepulveda? I tell tells stories of this region.

To get to such a remote place is my long-standing dream. In your picture this "end of geography" looks highly impressive, but cheerless and unfriendly. Inclusion of the lighthouse to the composition make the scene being more colorful and friendly. Excellent reproduction of the unique atmosphere of the end of the world!

nice the view of this rocky land with the replica of the lighhouse to dominates the cloudy morning.I like the moody atmosphere as the good light management.

It's true, dear Mary, this image has a special atmosphere, pleasantly mysterious, almost dramatic. You managed the light perfectly, giving an incredible depth. Truly an excellent testimony of this isolated place. Brava!
Ciao, have a nice week!

considering the conditions I think you managed quite well. The composition is really fine and exposure is not that bad. All in all, a good eye!

a nice shot, simple but so much tranquil place. The last light of the day created a mystic atmosphere with the watch tower at background. Great reflection in water. A very good one. Tfs.

Este lugar es sin duda un sueño visitarlo (al menos mio :)) y viendo fotos como las tuyas mis ganas no hacen más que incrementar...Preciosa composición con este tono gris que te aportan las nubes dándole un toque aún más especial
Un saludo desde España

I did the same tour probably. The place is spectacular indeed. The lighthouse so charming and seems surrounded by a really wild environment.
Unfortunately I had similar weather as well. It does shows the real atmosphere but I guess with some more sunshone it could look more eye catching.
I would love to get back there again. Especially I regret not taking the other tour to the penguins colony.
Thanks for refreshing my memories.

a very interesting impression of a wonderful place. You have chosen an excellent POV. The colors are really fascinating but it is the light that creates a great mood. My compliments!

travelling to the end of the world you can see soneone this lonely 'replica' of lighthouse to dominates the area.the moody atmosphere makes the image more effective.

Buenos días María,
Esto efectivamente se parece a la extremidad del mundo, con la calma del mar. Composición muy bella, con un cielo y una luz de circunstancia. Bravo.

I also had the privilege to visit that lighthouse! I was so happy to be there, to be doing that tour, to be seeing the animals and all that nature around me!
It was very cold (but I like it) and I enjoyed every single minute of the boat ride! This picture brings me good memories!
Felicitaciones y gracias por compartir,

Another your beautiful composition from Argentina.
An interesting story about this lighthouse, which was named after the great writer.
Very nicely coordinated colors.
This little red lighthouse makes a great deal.
Fine work under not at all easy light.

Namaste Maria ~
This is beautiful frame.
Excellent tones and soft moods.
josepmarin (57831) 2011-12-14 2:40
el faro con sus franjas rojas y blanca crea un fuerte contraste en referencia con el cielo gris y nublado, con los tonos verdes oscuros del paisaje, y con el agua del mar plateada.
La débil luz, los colores bien saturados y los reflejos sobre el agua, forman una composición muy atractiva, en una buena foto que has realizado con eficacia.

Muy buena imagen con mucha tranquilidad..bien contraste con el verde y el cielo gris..muy bien visto

Un coin splendide qui a été parfaitement décrit par Nicolas Hulot sur son émission TV du nom d'Ushuaia.
Le phare est bien cadré en point fort.

So this lighthouse was built for the tourists, yeah...I hope the original one isn't feeling like less of a lighthouse, not getting the deserved attention as it should. :)
Normally a cloudy sky such as this seems to take away from a photo opportunity, but I really like what it's done for the light and atmosphere of this shot. There's a haunting beauty in the low light, especially as it casts a darker tone over the waters. You're right, there is some mystery in the air...but hopefully no rain. :)
Enjoy the new day down there. Be good.
Cheers from the States,
