Tungenes Lighthouse

Tungenes Fyr Stavanger Rogaland

f/22, 1.3 sec, ISO 100

Tungenes Lighthouse was lit in 1828 when the herring trade needed a safe entrance to the harbour in Stavanger. The lighthouse master’s house is from 1938, his assistant’s house from 1957-58. There is an annex, machinery shed and boathouse. Tungenes Lighthouse is  today protected and restored back to its 1930s appearance.

  1. The subtle colours caught my eye in this photo. As did the subject matter — lighthouses hold a special place in the hearts of those who grow up by the sea. So many have been lost or abandoned in favour of new technology — good to see that some are being restored.

  3. Hi Inger … Your website is wonderful and I look forward to following your photographic journey. I took a short drive around the Tungenes Headland on Google Maps after seeing this image – couldn’t get right up to the lighthouse but the countryside and houses are beautiful. You live in a very scenic place. Also thank you for following my blog – Wes

    • Thank you so much for taking interest in my blog Wes! A pleasure to have you here. Yes – the area around Tungenes is a lovely spot. It is close to the city of Stavanger, but still an area where you have some older structures and possibilities for lovely walks along the coast. I am hoping to explore this are in more detail this fall.
