Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Color White

Go to Cee’s blog to see what this challenge is about. I chose one setting: the sleepy colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay.

This lighthouse has a strategic location on the River Plate. The river may seem calm but it gets very rough when there is a sudestada (a violent storm caused by southeasterly winds typical of the River Plate basin). On moonless nights or during a storm, ships needed guidance to reach the coast.  Construction on this working lighthouse began in 1855 and was finished in 1857.
