Faros Katakolon, Katakolon, Greece
The Katakolon Lighthouse (Faros Katakolon) sits on a hill just to the North of the town of Katakolon, Greece. Katakolon is home to a cruise ship port for persons visiting the ancient site of Olympia a short distance away. This lighthouse is active and was built in 1865. Photos 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).
