The Lighthouse

in #norway5 years ago (edited)


The Pikesten lighthouse in Hvaler/Norway has been in use for decades, guiding sailors to safety. Apparently it is scheduled for demolition. Well, just above it you can see another beacon, it's been with us for more than 4.600.000.000 years. And will probably not go away in our time. The planet Venus.
Have a great weekend.
Cheers, Erlend

Thanks for sharing..

Umåtelig pent bilde dette her @Erlendgroseth
Vi får håpe de ikke river fyret da

That lighthouse looks great with those surroundings. Incredible picture.

Kjempefint bilde @Erlendgroseth
Fint landskap med stemningsfulle fargar og med eit blinkskot av Venus like over toppen av fyrtårnet.

Med vennleg helsing

Wow !!!
So wonderful moment and specially night moment and place is awesome...
Great click @erlendgroseth

Why is it scheduled for demolition..
Ancient architecture is fascinating

Hi @rjunaid12,
Well, the key word is as you said, ancient... The owner is not willing to spend money on maintenance. This has become a delicate and controversial issue in the local community, as it is a lot of warm feelings for this old lighthouse. Could be that it will be saved eventually. I'm crossing my fingers and hope for the best. :)
Cheers, Erlend

I hope it is saved..
I love ancient architecture

Amazing steepshot. Such a beautiful sunset moment. I miss the beautiful moment.

The lighthouse can be used to monitor the sailors, above the lighthouse we can also see the beauty of the sunset to the seabed.
Like photography,What a beautiful sight
