Lightvessel "Kittiwake", Dublin, Ireland
Originally built in 1957 this lightvessel (or lightfloat) was retired in 2007. It is currently moored on the North side of the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland in front of the O2 complex (formerly Point Depot). When viewed in May 2009 it showed signs of vandalism. Photos taken in May 2009.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
