Title In the lighthouse on Pentax Day 2009
Description Boosted by the Pentaxium I asked for permission to get into the Mamelles lighthouse, Dakar's oldest (1864). I did not know that I could get a few inches from the biggest lens I have ever seen (Fresnel mounted on mercury). Careful: this beast is rotating at 12rpm. Fortunately my 12mm can get it all in a frame (almost).
