Photographer's Note

It would be difficult to miss this lighthouse from the ocean during the day. I didn't adjust the colors at all on this shot except for a little additional blue in the sky - the yellow and red are as they were in real life.

This lighthouse is on a peninsula just east of Grindavik, in southern Iceland, in the middle of a lava field. Interspersed are the wrecks of several boats who apparently did *not* see the lighthouse (or perhaps the wrecks predate the lighthouse).

The topography made it kind of difficult to get a good view of the lighthouse together with the ocean, which is a little ways over the hill in front of the lighthouse. A lovely spot, which is worth a visit if you are there. This was one of the places I planned to visit when in Iceland.
