Looks a peaceful and beautiful place - a camera's man place to be.

Jeg drømmer meg bort til sol og sommer.

Dette er vel rett ut av læreboka.
Meget flott komponert bilde.

I love lighthouses and what a perfect day to be out and about and taking photos.

Nydelig bilde Rune! Der hadde det vært spennende å vært en ja. Happy SkyWatch fra Drammen :o) takk for kommentarer hos meg!

Kitty said...

A warm hazy blue sky, calm seas and an ancient lighthouse - lovely!

Anemone said...

Å ja, en kjenner seg igjen, har nok tråkket der for noen år siden jeg også.

Tenkte å deg just nu, for hørte på nyhetene at en faktisk nå i disse dager kan se romfergen Discovery med det blåtte øye over landet. Skulle visst passere Bergen nå i 2130 tiden i kveld. går man inn på det norske romsenterets nettsider får man nærmere informasjon om når den passerer neste gang. DET hadde vært noe å fange i linsa det Rune!

Klem herfra også denne kvelden.

WoW! So different from lighthouses I know and love here in North America. This is great!

Tarolino said...

Jag har varit där och du har faktiskt lyckats att ta ett första klassens foto på det. Hela färgskalan är så grekisk.

Carol said...

Det var en litt annen type fyrtårn ja! Veldig vakkert - og veldig vakkert kompnert bilde! Var nok der man skulle vært nå ja - selvom jeg elsker denne tiden med fint vær og snøsmelting!

Lene said...

Fredfyllt og vakkert bilde, Rune! Eia var man der. Jeg har sånn voldsom lengsel mot vår og sommer nå! Deilige dager ute nå, da - heldigvis. Enorme mengder med snø er snaaaaart smeltet bort. Skal bli godt. John er ute og hjelper sola litt hver dag - med å måke ;)

Ha ei super helg i vest :) Masse hilsninger fra øst :)

Rune: What a wonderful capture from a country that rivals the beauty of yours.

SandyCarlson said...

Wonderful lighthouse shot!

Lynda Lehmann said...

That's quite a wall leading up to the lighthouse. I wonder if it serves as a kind of jetty?

Alan said...

From Norway to the Mediterranean... next week from Antarctica? :) (Be sure to include penguins if so!)

Great shot of the lighthouse. It looks small from this distance but I'm guessing that sea wall is at least 15 feet tall? Those are tiny people I can see aren't they?

Naturegirl said...

Great shot..to be by the sea...sigh!

so beautiful :)

Jeni said...

I haven't commented in a while -not because I'm not reading, not because there's been anything wrong with your posts, your pics, etc. Nothing like that at all because your pictures are fantastic. But every now and again, you totally blow me away with a picture and I HAVE to break my silence. This is one of those instances. Just one of the most awesome photos of yours that had to have a comment left about it -absolutely HAD TO!

Mediterranean kiwi said...

my home town! how lovely

Arija said...

Simple and beautiful, therefore simply beautiful!

Hyde DP said...

Ah so instantly recognisable - it looks even better at night with the moon behind it.

Dewdrop said...

That is one of the most beautiful lighthouses I have ever seen. Gorgeous with the stone work. They just don't make them like that anymore. Awesome. Thanks so much for sharing.

floreta said...

ooh i'd like to visit! i've been wanting to visit Greece for awhile. thanks for sharing.

GMG said...

From that light tower you could see a lot of sea and sky. Beautifu shot!

Ivar Ivrig said...

Kjempeflott komposisjon av et vakkert fyr.
Det eneste jeg savner er en måke :-)

Kostas said...

Wow Rune,
Congratulating for post of the day, but also for marvellous your blog.
Splendid the photograph with the beautiful Lighthouse of Hania!

PERBS said...

First I noticed the beautiful lighthouse and next THE GORGEOUS blue of the seas. Neat catch!

I also left a coment on your odd shots which I missed earlier.

The Things We Carried said...

This is a lighthouse unlike any I have seen! I can't believe how tiny the people look there.

Kerri said...

WOW! What a fabulous shot!

Linda said...

Simply Stunning!

Barbara Martin said...

That is a place I would love to visit some day. The photo is perfect!

This lighthouse is a little unusual and different than the ones I'm used to seeing. It looks likely, but lighthouses always seem like lonely places.
