Ruilof,

What a varied collection ... thanks for sharing what we dont often get to see ... trying to pick a favorite, I dont know that I can ... can something be similar to the familiar but unique as well?

Great photos Ruilof, you got to see some really cool places on your trip! I love seeing the differences between the familliar American lights and lightships and the European ones.

Like Mike, I think it is interesting to see lights and lightships from other places. It shows there are other designs out there that are effective other than what we normally think of.

Thanks for sharing these! It was a treat!

Thanks for all the nice comments.
During my holidays it was hot and sunny for weeks, so interesting photos with beautiful clouds were impossible to make. :)
For us, here in Europe it's interesting to see all the pictures of American lighthouses.
