Interesting position of the lighthouse, behind the bridge!  I guess the lighthouse was standing there earlier than the bridge.

Greetings Klaus and **polytropos. Thanks for the LIKE, Klaus and your comments. I too would presume the lighthouse was there way before the bridge came, polytropos. Best regards, Hank

First the Lighthouse Then we take Berlin. I wonder if any bridge has been built that includes a lighthouse?

At least there are lighthouses that includes a bridge.

Welcome Itallica and **polytropos. Interesting question. When I first photographed The Little Red Lighthouse which sits beneath the George Washington Bridge I learned that the lighthouse was deactivated because the bridge is its own lighthouse because of all the lights. So I guess well lit bridges are lighthouses...of sorts; but you can't live on a bridge. Cheers, Hank

But there are a lot of people who live under a bridge ;-)

Too true and too sad. :-(
