Morning lighthouse


Morning lighthouse, originally uploaded by ccgd.

The lighthouse in Cromarty. Taken last September and framed in the early morning light. Walking along the links, or the beach, in the winter you could always see it blinking it's light across the Firth.

I must admit that I always wondered what purpose it served these days, with the town being so brightly lit, and with the yard at Nigg, and the oil terminal, having more navigation lights than you could shake a stick at. Not to mention every little vessel now having GPS....

Well now it is switched off. For ever. Decommissioned. Dark. One wonders what it's future will be.

And they only painted the roof last summer.

I love your web site, i don't live in Cromarty anymore but seeing your different Sutor Sunrise's are just fantastic and bring back fond memories, i always thought that Cromarty had some of the best sky's around, a real slice of heaven.
