Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm thinking further North.
Somewhere around the Gulf of St.Lawrence or maybe even Newfoundland???

Stick with me kid ..... font of all wisdom and all that .....

Ok .... this one has got me I confess. Judging by the the style of the lighthouse it seems likely to be Canada probably Newfoundland but that is as close as I have got.

Fallard ... where are you my man ... we need clues ...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The lighthouse itself matches the Cape Race lighthouse but nothing else does so I'm presuming same designer but that is all I've got.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Cape Race lighthouse was built in the UK and installed by Trinity House, so it's almost certainly a common design.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

To me Fisgard does not look slab sided enough. That LH is dead straight, no visible conical shape. Fisgard Island also doesn't look big enough.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The light is on an island in the US. One distinguishing feature is the tramway that was used to bring fuel to the lighthouse. Another is the rather rare, 12 ft high 1st order Fresnel lens.
