Hi Folks.
This time green lighthouse nearly four miles out into Dublin Bay.

Wikipedia says:

The green lighthouse in Dublin bay is the North Bull lighthouse, a couple of yards off the end of the North Bull Wall, and another lighthouse sits out in the bay itself. Green is for starboard (right) and red is for port (left) - presumably its right and left as you enter Dublin port (travelling from west to east) so the north would be on your right/starboard and is therefore green and the south would be on your left/port and is therefore red.

Check the Map:[view] for the exact location. Looks realy interesting from the sky.

Hope you will like it.

A good shot!! The bird is that little extra! Beautiful colours! A GREEN lighthouse with a big bell!!

Well done!

nice green lighthouse and a bonus with the sky, interesting soft and warm light

Excellent picture, great scenery. Good composition.
Well done.

Hi Janek - nicely composed with the lighthouse off-centre like that. Strong colours and the inclusion of the gull is a nice touch. Good shot.

love lighthouses, very ice shot mate! TFS

This is really beautiful. I like this lighthouse. Great colors and a really nice scene. Have a great day!

Czolem Janek.
Od dawna juz planuje polowanie na latarnie i zawsze mi cos przeszkodzi. Ta jest taka jakas...zielona. Prawdziwa powinna byc biala albo bialo-czerwona, tak jak prawdziwa krolowa powinna nosic korone.
Fotka dobrze skomponowana, podoba mi sie to swiatlo na latarnii.

Czesc Janek
Zawsze kojarzylem sobie latarnie morska stojaca na wysokim brzegu,czesto na skalistym.Slaba moja znajomosc morskich obyczajow.
Ladnie ta latarnie ujales (z brzegu ?)Ladny widok,przyjemne kolory.

hi Janek

Very nicely captured contrast in color and composition showing the lighthouse in saturated green and including a bird in flight. Good shot to isolate the lighthouse to the right.

tfs, bill

Morning Janek
This is a strange color for a lighthouse - but Wikipedia made the reason clear. Lighting well managed here. Compositions is spot on.

Thanks for the recent visit.

Janek, my favorite photos: Lighthouses. This is the first green one I've ever seen. Your notes provided some interesting facts that have now made me smarter than I was yesterday. Good work!
