Weekly photo challenge: contrast


A contrast might be a lot of different things. It might be a color different from the surrounding or a shadow. I might also be a lonely flower in the street and so on.

Last evening I spent in one of my favorite places, situated in our archipelago. I went to a place where I have been many times, but it’s always amazing. This time there where a light wind and wonderful sounds from the sea. I always love the views, the smell from water and also the calmness it brings me.

Our weather is a bit moody this summer. We noticed it had just rained before we got there but the sun just returned. It created a wonderful evening light with great skies.

Of to the challenge now… The first to photos shows the same place at winter and now when it’s summer. You can spot a part of a cabin, that is  where the lighthouse personnel lived during the years 1867-1954. The belfry were used to warn ships in misty weather.

Next photo shows the lighthouse, I like the contrast between manmade and nature.

The last photo for this challenge shows a silhouette of a man standing on a rock just beside the lighthouse.

Now it’s time for a poll, please tell me which photo do you favor? You might use multiple choices. The poll is open until 10th of July 2014.

  1. There is a big difference between summer and winter. Is the water frozen in winter? It looks so different with the snow and the water you can’t barely see.

      Yes the water is frozen, it was a very cold day with -16 °C. That winter was long and filled with ice and snow. Still it is beautiful I think.

  2. Love the contrast between the first two pics.
