Abandoned Lighthouse in Palau

Randy Richards

Kona, United States

Artist's Description

As we zipped by on our boat, we passed this old (and only) light house in Palau. It was a bit bouncy to get a good shot, but this at least shows the old light house, now leaning and powerless. Taken with a Nikon D5100 and a 75-300. This was out about 1/4 mile into the ocean off of Koror Island, the main Island of Palau.

On Dec 3 2012 Palau was hit by Super Typhoon Bopha and the remains of this lighthouse became a pile of rubble and a new hazard to boats. :<{
