Just want to say that Souter lighthouse lighthouse is the first lighthouse in the world to be actually designed and built specifically to use alternating electric current, the most advanced lighthouse technology of its day. Thanks for looking.

This is a lovely lighthouse and beautifully captured. If it were mine I would compose it differently vut it isn't mine!

Barbara, it's near Sunderland. Not far away from you...Here is the map
Lynne, I can send you portrait format as well.. I cropped off the grass on this one.
I took several photos there, it's a wonderful place.. most of the lighthouses have a bit distance from the shore, this one you could stand next to it... you have to wait until you are fit to visit there. The steps are very steep, you need to get down backward...Grin
Thank you Hermanus.

If it has been decommissioned, it certainly looks freshly painted and kept up. Is it a tourist attraction only, now? Wonderful vivid colors.
