Civitavecchia Lighthouse, Civitavecchia, Italy
The remains of the former Civitavecchia Lighthouse sit on a small mole in the main harbour in the port of Civitavecchia, Italy. This lighthouse was established in 1616 and the lighthouse was destroyed during World War II. The remains of the cylindrical base is all that is left of the tower. Photos were taken in September 2011.
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).
