Tungenes Fyr is situated in the municipality of Randaberg, and was built in 1828. It ceased to be an operating lighthouse in 1984, but it has protected status under the Cultural Heritage Act.
This was the day when you were with me Mira, and we collected shells and listened to the waves and the oyster catchers :)
Can't wait Mira - I hope I haven't given you my cold :)
It's a nice old lighthouse Billy, but I think the Cultural Heritage people need to spend some money on the upkeep of the outside. It was a grey day, but the light was amazing considering :)
Hallo Amelia, I can deduct as important and necessary structure for this lighthouse.
This picture is wonderful, and it is good to know this place through your photo, thank to sharing it.
Best wishes, Wolfgang
Best wishes, Wolfgang
Amelia, a photo that I like very much.
The picture has a basic color. This shows us the harshness of this country.
It is wonderful that the buildings are historically protected.
A nice evening from Germany to Norway,
It seems bleak and lonely, albeit that the dull red adds welcome colour and the solitary bird on the top of the beacon roof. There are curtains in the lighthouse part of the building, might it still be occupied?
The picture presents a ruggedness that is pleasing. ciao nick
Good morning Wolfgang, until 1984 this was a working lighthouse and there is a lot of shipping round this rather dangerous point. The new beacon now does the job :)
Hello Ge Ko, you are right, it is a harsh area and sometimes it's almost impossible to stand up. That day the sea was in a very quiet mood.
Hi Nick, It can be bleak indeed here, but although today's photo looks grey, it was a lovely day to be there - calm seas - and very little noise. Sometimes it's impossible to stand up or hear yourself speak. It is still occupied, although it is no longer used as a lighthouse, the job has been taken over by this one. On Sundays you get a cup of coffee and a bun there :)
BEAUTIFUL Amelia Greetings Eva
Hello Eva, it was a grey day here in Norway, but I'm so pleased you like the wild beauty of this lighthouse.
Regards from Azores Islands,
My applause for Cultural Heritage Act!!, it is one of the most beautiful lighthouse I've ever seen Amelia, a YS picture.
Hello da Moose, just a tad late with a reply here!!!! Thanks for your compliment. The lighthouse is now out of commission, since 1984, and there is a new, and very plain stack, out at sea. But I think they may light it still :))
Good morning Victor, I am 4 months late in replying to your wonderful comment. Thank you my friend for your praise and the YS. I really do appreciate it :))
Mário, please accept my apologies fro this very late reply. I thank you for your wonderful response to this Norwegian lighthouse :))
Greetings to The Azores, Amelia
It's a beautiful, old lighthouse, Amelia. I love these things in all their variety. Nearly all of the ones I'm aware of (including the Dungeness lighthouse that you commented on in my gallery) are now just kept as scenic reminders of bygone days. L.
Best wishes, Bryan
