PhotoHunt — "point"

The Montauk Lighthouse sits on a point
of land at the easternmost tip of Long
Island.  Next stop due east: Portugal.

[To see more "points," visit the Saturday PhotoHunt.]


  1. Beautiful... somewhere in Portugal on the other side is probably a lighthouse, too! ;<)

  2. A lighthouse, flag at half-mast...

    May it light up a certain songbird’s way, if she is so disposed.

    Bibi’s comment brought to mind a pre-electric telegraph system. They were an interesting plot device in The Count of Monte Cristo. In this case, however, we might call the trans-Atlantic lighthouses a kind of heliograph. They were quite useful but you had to point them in the right direction. I wonder what they would communicate. “Dude, this is so cool. Unlimited nighttime minutes for free!”

  3. Oh that looks good enough to paint.
    Bon weekend ma chère!

  4. How do you know my friend Virginia??? It's a small world.
    That is the perfect shot for The Saturday PhotoHunt.
    I hope to see y'all next Saturday... Let's get LOUD!
