    I have no idea, but will try to find out. On the way back in, the same lighthouse had a gray strip under and just as wide as the red strip due to low tide. Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a photo.

    Here is another from the same trip.

    Here it is...called "Bug Light," or more formally, the Duxbury Pier Lighthouse. There's a "Bug Light" in Maine, too...

    You could have added that this is the most "significant" lighthouse in Austrailia, and located along the Great Ocean Road on the coast of Victoria in Southeast Australia (Melbourne). I cheated and looked it up...

    Looking at the web site it seems to be in the middle of nowhere. Or maybe... where nowhere ends. But mighty purdy.

    Thanks Sigbhu, any camera info? You can add it by editing the existing post.

    Nice shot.

    Lowestoft, Suffolk, United Kingdom

    Trinity House is the organisation responsible for maintaining all lighthouses in the United Kingdom (and Gibralter I think). It built its first lighthouse at Lowestoft in 1609 though not on the site of this one. Lowestoft is the most easterly point in the UK.

    The light isn't easy to photograph from the land because it's set into quite a steep cliff. The best way is to go out to sea and photograph from there though I didn't have the chance to do that. If you'd like to see a view of the lighthouse from the sea, click here.

    This is the best that I could do. Taken with a Panasonic FZ10 in mid-April 2005.

    Southwold, Suffolk, United Kingdom

    Amazingly to me, the lighthouse at Southwold is in the town itself as opposed to being on the coast and without doubt, the best place to see it completely would be from the air!

    I couldn't get further away from it because other buildings then became visible - notably the near-by pub! This is the best I could do. Taken with a Panasonic FZ10 in mid-April 2005

    The one great thing about having a long lens is that you can take pictures like this one. Very nice. Risking life and limb is not required to get a good shot. Thanks.

    North Head Lighthouse, WA

    I've been a-travelling.

    This is North Head Lighthouse in Washington State and is very close to the Cape Disapointment Lighthouse which I didn't have time to get to. It's a fabulous view across the Pacific Ocean and to stand and watch the waves smash on to the rocks was quite something.

    "After Cape Disapointment Lightstation was established in 1856 to mark the entrance to the Columbia River, mariners approaching the river from the north complained they could not see the light until they had nearly reached the river. Their cry for an additional lighthouse was supported by the many shipwrecks, which occurred along the Long Beach Peninsula, just north of the cape.

    Construction of North Head Lighthouse began in 1896. The tower is brick masonry with a cement plaster overlay built on a sandstone foundation. Since the light is only two miles north of Cape Disappointment, North Head needed a distinct signature. North Head shone a fixed white light, while Cape Disappointment alternated red and white flashes.

    North Head is one of the windiest places in the United States. On January 29, 1921, winds were clocked at 126 mph before the instrument blew away. They have frequently been measured at over 100 mph." (Text from Lighthousefriends.com)

    I wonder if it keeps the residents awake...flash....flash....flash. Is there a fog horn as well? Now we know what the pub is for.
