The lighthouses are such a mysterious places - romantic and always about hope - to show the light to the lost - to see the loved one back! Great place - great shot!

Thanks everyone:), yes I have Aileni Its a great film, I have two versions of it-I suspect this lighthouse and its keepers [when it was manned] have seen a lot of shipwrecks in its time, its on top of the fortress and there's a great view from up there.
