lighthouse Æðarsteinn

Lighthouse Æðarsteinn (Æðarsteinsviti) in June 2008. The lighthouse is located northwesterly from Djúpivogur. We turned off from the ring road into a little cul-de-sac, which leads to a disposal station or storage place and came closer to the lighthouse. But also here the bad weather kept us from reaching the lighthouse.
The lighthouse was painted yellow-orange only in 1966, before it it was white with two horizontal red stripes.
