  1. There has always been something I have liked about lighthouses, especially older ones which hae so much character. This is such a beautiful image, Inger. I love the sweeping rugged rocks leading to the distinctive lighthouse with that wonderful cloud light backdrop.

    • Wow – that is amazing! And 150 years old, that is a lot. Slettnes Lighthouse was unfortunately destroyed during the second world war if not it had been more than a 100 years now. It was rebuilt just after the war.

  2. Un paraje solitario y espectacular. La composición, la luz y los tonos son una “delikatessen”. Los faros siempre son un buen ” highlight” para rematar una gran obra! Cheers, Inger! 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed this serene photo, Inger. This week I was on the southernmost point of the U.S. (in Hawaii) and there is something profound about these points, like your lighthouse here. And you captured the profoundness in this photo.

    • Thank you so much Jet! I really appreciate your comments:) This is probably my favourite photo of this light house. I am thinking about going back in winter, the clear blue winter sky and the lighthouse surrounded by snow. That must be magical as well.

    • I share your passion for photographing lighthouses! There is really something special about them. Hopefully you still have the chance to photograph the lighthouses around New Jersey in 2017, would love to see them through your blog:)
