Lighthouse of the Week, March 15-21, 2015: Bengtskär Lighthouse, Finland

Yes, this is abysmally late in the week, so it's only one picture.   It's the Bengtskär lighthouse of Finland, on an island at the head of the Gulf of Finland (Baltic Sea).  It's the tallest lighthouse in Finland, and according the Wikipedia, the tallest one in the whole Nordic countries.

It was the site of the Battle of Bengtskär in WWII.

I've got a great lighthouse planned for next week.  Stay tuned.
