The Lighthouse


I finally got around to go out to the lighthouse with the boat. The weather was fairly calm so it was okay to go in my small boat. Unfortunately I was loosing light but I still got some nice pictures. Below is a picture of the same lighthouse in storm.

The lighthouse is called “Väcker” from the small island where it’s placed. It was built in 1939 to guide ships in an area with many dangerous shallow rocks and strong winds. Several waterways intersect here. In the past goods and fishing ships depended on this for navigation but today it’s more of a landmark, or sea mark.

Light up someones day, ha de Gött!

  1. The contrast of the two photos is fabulous. In the stormy one, there are two big waves on either side of the photo, white and fierce. They just rear up from the sea, almost like rocks themselves, they’re so steep and solid looking.
