Hoek Van Holland High (Range Rear) Lighthouse, Hoek Van Holland, Netherlands

This light, a 69' cast iron tower, was built in 1893 and served as the rear range light at Hoek Van Holland (Hook of Holland), Netherlands. It was deactivated in 1974 with the construction of the Maasvlakte. It now serves as a museum (Netherlands Coastal Lighthouse Museum).  Photos taken in April 2013 from the M.S. Rotterdam.
