lighthouse Dyrhólaey

Lighthouse Dyrhólaey (Dyrhólaeyjarviti) in June 2008. Unfortunately the area around the rocks of Dyrhólaey is bird protection area and is closed from the beginning of May till the end of June for any approach. So we got only these snapshots from a distance, from the closed gate.
Already since 1910 a steel lattice lighthouse stood on Dyrhólaey rock.
