This looks like a modern lighthouse.

This is so fine! It is so sharp that the building appears etched in the sky! Gorgeous lighthouse. And I love all the colors here!

@Sharon: The lighthouse dates back to 1868. It was restored in 2007 and the compound transformed into a museum.

Unusual-looking lighthouse, beautiful against that brilliant sky.

It looks quite distinctive... and different from the ones I'm used to.

I like the stark feel but it has it's decorative elements. A good balance, not baroque, not austere.

Randy said...

That's different. I thought they were always round.

With a few more windows, this could be a modern condominium. ;)

Interesting contrast: the colours of the lighthouse and the blue sky!
