Lighthouse on a church: More photos posted

A forum to discuss lighthouses in Canada, Australia, Europe and Asia.

Churches and lighthouses are no unique combination, but this one at Helsinki, Finland, is one of the most impressive ones in the world. I was there this weekend and lady fortune was with me, regarding the fact that I was allowed to climb all the way to the lantern (with a stile at the exterior of the dome) and have a look there. Another highlight, after walking through the wall of Kopu Lighthouse in Estonia, sailing to Loggerhead Key and standing on top of our own Brandaris lighthouse. I plan to write an article about it and will share it with you when it is finished. Here's the first photo.

I wasn't as close as Frans was, but here is a shot from across the harbour taken during my September trip over there:

There are a few other lighthouse pictures in and around Helsinki that I'll put up when I have time.
