Cabo Rojo Lighthouse in Puerto Rico

This was suppose to have been one of the best places to watch a sunset, but the clouds rolled in.

I ended up shooting with a photo meet-up group. They have a web site //www.photopr.com. It's all in Spanish, but they have some neat stuff on there. They were all very nice, and the one other Canon person there and I had fun trying each other lenses (He had a asweet Tokina wide angle). One of the Nikon boys had an ultra wide 180 degree fisheye. Very cool!

I had a lot of fun meeting them as we were complete strangers, but we were all people who loved to take photographs!

The song is off of the Revolver album

Edit: This picture was selected for Kodak Photo of the Day for November 4th, 2006. Whoohoo!

I love this picture. I noticed your comment "This was suppose to have been one of the best places to watch a sunset, but the clouds rolled in". This is just my opinion, but I think that most sunset pictures that don't have some clouds are very boring. It seems like it would be very difficult to achieve the "WOW" factor with out them. Once again, just my opinion.

The picture looks a bit grainy. Maybe NeatImage would have made it better.
