I love lighthouses, weather they are big and accessible or, as in this case, small and isolated. There is something about this object that feels very welcoming and it probably has to do with its function. A lighthouse shines the light that leads you to safety, away from the open sea.
These images were taken in Zablace, Croatia. As the sun was setting I was standing on the outer walls of a fortress, gazing into the distance. The whole bay was filled with the most intense blue colors.

I really love the pale orange glow of the sunset that is lingering on the horizon.

Across the bay, the city of Sibenik can be seen in the distance.
Do you like lighthouses? I love all coastlines that are filled with them.
