Hola Dmitry!
,,This is really hard to check" – thanks for this information. Other part of your answer doesnt explain me nothing – sorry Dmitry. I didnt expect answer, I wanted  just sygnalize ...
Have you been looking closer at the popularity list? I wouldnt write here if it would be not strange – not the amount of ,,points" is wondering me – I know about the ,,internet chain reaction" and even a half of million wouldnt surprise me, but ...
I give only 2 examples
1/ four identic described pictures ,,frying pan tower" – 3 have between 60 and 120 and 1 nearly 22000...
2/ 49 pictures have about 20000 and then is a gap to 1800...
I could write more..., but if it is hard to check then lets delete this topic.
Heartly greetings Michal

I guess the counter makes some mistakes OR someone playes with the counting; most of the pictures after few years have between 100 and 1000 "points" - there is a small group of pictures with 20000 "points"...
My example: Im here since 2 months - most of pictures have between 20 and 40 "points" exept of 3, which have over 200....
Dmitry - have you checked it?
Greetings MICHAL

Netherland Antilles
They don't exist anymore...
Since 10-10-2010 there are 6 'units' - Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Sint Maarten, Sint Eustatius and Saba. Here there are 2 albums: Sint Maarten and Netherland Antilles. My suggestion: if we put former Netherland Antilles together, then separate album should be for Saint Martin. What do you think Dmitry? (or you make 6 separate albums + 1 for Saint Martin, but in the northern islands there are no many lights - if Im not wrong 1 per island + eventually air navigation)

Instead of starting a new topic I write in this, because its similar
Hola Mitko, probably you have been thinking about it:
Spain - I guess it would be easier to see the lighthuses if the country album would be divided into smaller parts...

No, no - as I wrote - in the future it will be maybe a harbour light, because they are building now a new capitol and harbour

Hola Dmitry!
As I thaught... these lights dont exist anymore, the old airport is covered with ashes, there is nice site to look at, lead by Montserrat Volcano Observatory (btw the newest volcano observatory in the world)
Greetings MICHAL
the question concered the picture from Sumbawa / Indonesia I posted today
thanks for the quick replay, greetings Michal
I hope that after identifying a light through someone I can relocate the picture from the album "not identified" to the country where it belongs?

Airports on Montserrat
1/ Blackburne (W.H.Bramble) Airport is under ashes since many years - it was on the eastern side of the island close to the sea shore
2/ Gerald's (John Osborne) Airport is in the middle in the northern part of the island, relatively high (nearly 200 m a.s.l.) from most sides invisible from the sea
On which airport are these lights?
Maybe there will be at least a harbour light in the future (but its not sure, because already now there is a small traffic there including a ferry), because the governement is building a small harbour.

I was been looking little bit to the pictures of lighthouses here and I found many inexact time information about the date of taking picture. Two examples:
1/ Rubjerg Knude in Denmark - I was there in September 2012
No museum as the info says; nothing to see from the lighthouse keeper houses; picture dated March 2012 shows near the lighthouse two houses 1/3 in sand, picture dated October 2013 not the least trace left from the buildings...
2/ Sandy Island in Antigua and Barbuda - I was there in February 2013 (I have a very bad picture from far distance)
There is no lantern on the skeletal tower, it was been removed some years ago; following the information on this page: did the maritime authority from  St. Johns bring back the lantern on the top of the tower? (on picture dated December 2013 there is lantern)
My suggestion is:
Uploading a picture from a lighthouse and giving "other and date information" about it - make some up-to-date. It would be nice to follow in some cases the history of the structures.
Greetings Michal

I thought that this page is for maritime navigation lights; I see here pictures from many other structures..., but why air navigation?
