What lighthouse is it - round 6

A forum to post any lighthouse pictures you'd like others to see. Feel free to talk about lighthouse photography. Lighthouse-related photos (such as LSS and lenses) are also welcome.

OK, with a little help from Frans, Old Dungeness lighthouse in the UK wasn't all that challenging. Maybe this one will be... I guess we'll see. :mrgreen:

As a starting point, this one is on the other side of the Atlantic.

Okay, I surrender :D
Regarding the environment, I will take my Northern Europe lighthouse books to search. It's rather weird that the light is so enclosed in the trees. Nice job for tonight to do some research.

Strange location for a lighthouse. Calm waters and surrounded by silky oaks and elms. Probably somewhere in the Lakes District in England.
At least I know it's not Eddystone or Bell Rock and several hundred others.

Looks like a nice spot for a picnic, Gary.

LOL Kevin. I can also name quite a few that are certainly not the one on the photo.

Not any clue yet. The landscape made me think it could be in Southern Sweden, but it is not in my Swedish book.

Maybe he meant the other side of the Atlantic from Old Dungeness... Making it an American light.

I was thinking one of the Lake Winnebago lights, but it doesn't match with any of those that I can find online. Maybe that lake in Arizona with all the lighthouse replicas? Nah, probably not.

Time for a hint, I reckon. How about it Gary? Is it NA or EU?

Sorry to be a tad slow in getting a hint up but the alligators were fierce at work today... was I supposed to be draining the swamp :?: :?: :?:

Definitely not a North American lighthouse, so forget about the US and Canada. The latitude is about right for when Frans was thinking of Swedish lighthouses, but this one isn't in Sweden. The water in front of the lighthouse is probably best referred to as brackish. If I turned around, I could see the open ocean.

Hope those hints help some...

BTW, Hersh, why would I go to Arizona to photograph lighthouses :?: :?: :?: Arizona is too hot to be consistent with life as far as I'm concerned. Gimme the cold and blowing winds of Lake Michigan any day :!:

Yeah you were, Hersh! The last time I was in Tempe, AZ, was in May a number of years ago and it was 105 in the shade... if you could find any :!: I don't want to even think of what it's like there in July and August... But then again, after the hints above, you need to focus your thinking on the other side of the Atlantic :!:

At the entrance of a Norwegian Fjord? Too bad I have no Norwegian book. :cry:

Well, I guess I'm providing another hint, Frans, this lighthouse ISN'T in Norway.

Gary, when you say you see the open ocean, does that mean the Atlantic, or can it mean any sea? In Dutch oceaan means Atlantic, Pacific or Indian, and all other waters are zee (sea). The state of the lighthouse and environment made me think it can be one of the Baltics, but they only have a "zee", not an "oceaan".

Looks Russian to me. Probably the Peterhof light.

Image Peterhof looks a bit different. The architecture looks like Russian or Baltic indeed. Still no idea.
