Last week I was on Isle of Wight, England, and could visit St Catherines Lighthouse. A light with a remarkable architecture, since a second tower was built against the original one, to house the foghorn. In the lantern room was the impressive Fresnel optic, that made this projection on the black painted windows at the land side of the lighthouse.

This is St Catherines LH

That's a very cool looking lighthouse. And I like how you shot the image of the Fresnel lens on the painted window. An original approach!!
