Nassau Harbor Lighthouse was constructed about 1816/1817 and is the oldest operating lighthouse in the West Indies. Although the lighthouse is only 69 feet (21 m) above sea level, it is one of the first objects sighted when arriving at Nassau by sea.
The lighthouse can easily be viewed when arriving or leaving Nassau by cruise ship or small craft. There are no tours and the only land access would be to hike over to it from Colonial Beach on Paradise Island, formerly Hog Island (Hog Island was renamed to the more appealing Paradise Island in the 1960s as resorts began to be built there.) It can be seen from nearly any point in Nassau that has a view of the harbor.

I'm a big fan of lighthouses, and this is a very quaint one at that.
couple of things I really like about the photo are the stark contrasts in the blues from the fg to the bg, and the placement of the horizon line at the 1/3 level.
the light was strong, but understandably difficult to deal with.
love the subject, love the colors, love the compo :)

I like the blue colors in this photo, and the high POV looking down at the lighthouse. The small piece of land divides the frame nicely, too. BTW, thanks for stopping by my gallery recently. We should meet up for photos or a chat one day!

very good composition with white sand strip and lighthouse as clear separation between light and dark blue seawater.
Beautiful color and sharpness.

A picture with just a few colours but they provide a very attractive combination. Three kinds of blue and an eye-catching red lighthouse as an accent. A pleasant view!

I am a big fan of lighthouses and your view is attractive for the narrow spit of land for the iconic structure with a turquoise blue foreground and deep blue background of ocean.
