Virtual walks around Iceland
In the cold waters of the North Atlantic, off the coast of Iceland is located
This is an unusual lighthouse.
The lighthouse was built in 1939, on a bare rock, an inaccessible rock in the ocean,
This lighthouse is a tiny house on a rock,
where several people can be accommodated barely.
Now the lighthouse is uninhabited and works completely in automatic mode.
People, (technical staff), come only for maintenance,
Before that, several workers were carrying the service,
Which succeeded each other.
Obviously, living conditions and services were not simple on the island
Especially during a boiling ocean during a storm.
Nowadays it is possible to get to the lighthouse only by air
And only by helicopter.
In the photo, the helicopter sits on a tiny platform.
After all, the island soars upward vertically, and the sharp outlines of the island of the rock,
With crashing waves are not safe for mooring.
Waves beat and bounce and fend off with counter waves,
This is a sight, even if a little excitement in the ocean.
Arriving workers will carry out maintenance of the workstation,
Check the computer, solar panels,
lighthouse construction elements and
Technical ground for a helicopter
Replenish necessary supplies and other necessary important things
Workers will stay overnight at the lighthouse
And admire the views from the cliff to the ocean.
