Photographer's Note

Harmaja (sw. Gråhara) lighthouse outside Helsinki. It was a nice first day of October and we took a short trip with our boat. Most of the big ferries to Stockholm and Tallin pass close by. The island also has a pilot station. Read more about it in Wikipedia. Taking ashore is forbidden because of the pilot station.

The original lighthouse, built in 1883, was deemed to low. A new base, seen in the picture, was built in 1900 to raise the lighthouse. Harmaja received the world's first directed and undirected radiobeacon in 1936. (Source Wikipedia)

PP: Shot in RAW, cropped slightly, contrast and brightness tweaked quite a bit, and added a little saturation, to match the light as I remebered it.
