I have set up this site as a means to share my photographs of lighthouses. Since retiring and finding more time to study photography, my interests have expanded a little. For some of my work other than lighthouses please enjoy my Facebook page at, John Shaw Photography. Come visit, enjoy, and 'LIKE' if you wish.

Also, for your enjoyment, I have provided a slideshow of our journey. To view it please use the link on the right under 'Site Navigation Tools'.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my efforts and use my site not only for information and education but also to provide directions for many enjoyable, inspirational visits to the beacons along our beautiful coas.

Faros de las Islas de Todos Santos (Lighthouses Near Ensenada, Mexico)

     The two lights are on the northwest tip of the northern of the two islands of Todos Santos, located in the Bahía de Ensenada about 20 km west of Ensenada. The islands are well known as a surfing site.

     One a stone tower, about 14 m (45 ft tall), attached to a 1-story stone keeper's house. The lighthouse is painted white and is inactive since thew lantern has been removed. The building was abandoned and deteriorating, but recently it has been renovated and repainted. 

     The other, painted with red and white horizontal bands is still active. It is a 98 foot concrete tower with two galleries, lantern and gallery.  A small clamshell Fresnel lens is in use. While the site is open, it is assessable only by boat.
