Norwegian lighthouse

This beautiful postcard arrived from Russia, but the lighthouse is located in Norway, on the southwestern tip of Eigerøy, about 12 km (7.5 mi) west of Egersund. This was Norway's first cast iron lighthouse with lantern and gallery. Its success encouraged the building of many more on the Norwegian coastline. Automated in 1989. Lighthouse is active and site is open for tourists in July.The picture is taken by Falk Lademann
