Lighthouses of Perú

These photos, selected to show a range of common Peruvian lighthouse designs, were taken from the web site of Perú's aids-to-navigation agency, the Dirección de Hidrografía y Navegación (DHN), in 2003. The photos appeared as thumbnails displayed by Javascript. I discovered that some, but not all, of these thumbnails were reduced from full-size images like the ones seen here. (Sadly, the photos seem to have been removed from the site, so I'm pleased to have captured these 18.)
