The Norwegian coastal administration Kystverket, together with the coastal transport museum Kystverkmusea, has now put digital versions of twelve lighthouses online.More will follow ! https://www.kystverket.no/
The "European Route of Lighthouses" was founded in Brussels on September 7, 2023. The "European Route of Lighthouses", ERoL for short, aims to highlight the cultural significance and possible uses of European lighthouses based on their past or present function as a sea mark and navigation aid.
Shortenly Mitko has uploaded a picture of this light.I have found a new situation! I believe also Peter has not found this light in 2022 ! Most web sites still mention this light, but it exist never more!
Five years ago I have been first time in Chumpon, Southern Thailand with a large harbour ! I have made severel pics and uploaded to World of Lighthouses.Alex Trabas wrote me at this time, I have missed the Admiralty F2924.2 and F2924.3. So I returned recently again to Chumpon to make pics from the missed lights. Now Alex Trabas revised all geographical positions. Now I had to correct all my pictures as well.I hope everything is correct now.
Lighthouse Directory from Russ Rowlett is very useful for all of us lighthouse lovers. But often I see great differences for height of the tower and focal plane elevation from Open Sea Map. For instance: Roscoff ! A1812.1 Russ: 24 and 24, Open Sea : 15 and 24 (seems realistic ) Or the beacons in sea: A1818, Russ :20 and 14, Open Sea : 8 and 14 (seems realistic ) and so on...
I think this is my first picture of a light I have made, not to know what a hobby will come later! I made it 1994 in Greece, Chalkidiki, peninsula Kassandra ! I failed to identify this small harbour light!
Recently I have made a trip to Eastern lighthouses of Thailand. I have found some lights not listed in Admiralty or Lighthouse Directory. But there are two lists, I cant find. For instance, yesterday I uploaded Rayong lighthouse. Beside Admiralty and ARLHS the Directory mentioned THN-114 and NGA 20600.
After almost 16 years I made a correction of one of my pictures. In 2006 I followed "The Lighthouse Directory" to Northern Bothia and made a picture of a lightship, northern of Uppsala. Lighthouse Directory called this lightship " Finngrundet", Now Erich Hartmann made this correction, thanks! This is Fyrskepp № 23 Kopparstenarna ! Everyone who is interested in lightships should visit
