The Lighthouse Endeavor
We painted the Tower green, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, and being the closest island lighthouse in the US to Ireland. It’s only a “wash”, so it won’t last long, but fun nonetheless. New post and pics are up on The Keeper's Journal.

(looks like PhotoShop green to me)

LOL... Photoshop green is right! I'm pretty sure if it were that bright it would be reflecting on the snow :roll:

And with a green window in the tower as with Little River. Your paint job looks much better.

I think this shade of green would function well for a light tower to make it easy to identify at a distance regardless of the background colors.
And a fluorescent green may have certain advantages at twilight and at night.

I did find a couple other similar.
