Vippefyr

My last photograph of the Eiffel Tower made me remember this one. This is from the very top of Denmark, Skagen. The pivot lighthouse (vippefyr) is the oldest one and the background the new lighthouse, Skagen Fyr. The Vippefyr consisted of a basket in which wood or coal was set alight. There is a third lighthouse there, called the old lighthouse, but I couldn’t get that in the photo.
