The Grey Lighthouse, or Det Grå Fyr, on a clear and starry August night.
The Grey Lighthouse is one of the tallest lighthouses in Denmark at 46 meters. The lighthouse is essentially built on a sand beach. If it wasn’t for the 429 pieces of 6m long larch posts used as a foundation this huge pile of stones would probably have tipped over many years ago. The architect Niels Siegfred Nebelong must have put some thought in it when he designed it back in 1858.
This picture was shot at 01.27 in the night.
It is a composite of two pictures. A 30s exposure of the lighthouse and the starry sky, and a 2,3s exposure to capture the light beams in the air.
