Tolbukhin Lighthouse, Gulf of Finland, Russia
This lighthouse is located on a small island approximately 5 kilometers Northwest of Kotlin Island. The current structure was built in 1810 and is believed to be the oldest active lighthouse in the area. This distant photo was taken in June 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).
