lighthouse Andenes

Lighthouse Andenes in June 2005. The lighthouse is open for visitors (appointment in the tourist office). The lower picture shows the lighthouse during midnight sun. How the next day shows, the pictures were a lucky chance, because of there comes deep sea fog in, which isn't so unusual for this landscape. The pier light is the only lighthouse at the Vesterålen which stands more northerly than lighthouse Andenes.
