lighthouse Rubjerg Knude

Lighthouse Rubjerg Knude in Denmark in May 2006. The drifting sand dune, which separated onetimes the lighthouse from the sea, so that the lighthouse had to close, is going into the landscape. The rigde of the dune is already behind the lighthouse. The first pieces of the houses will soon fall into the sea, because the coast comes closer and closer to the lighthouse. We are lucky that we could take a 360-degree-panorama-picture from the galery of the lighthouse.
