Marken Lighthouse | Paard Van Marken - The Netherlands.
The Marken Lighthouse can be found on the IJsselmeer, rising from the easternmost point of the Dutch peninsula of Marken.
There has been a lighthouse on this location since the early 1700s but the current structure was built in 1839.
This monumental lighthouse is also called "Paard Van Marken" or Horse of Marken because of its shape, which consists of a 16m tower attached to two pyramidal-roofed houses.
The lighthouse is now a private residence.

4/5th of sky and 1/5 of water: it works very well because the sky is splendid and the small points of red on the lighthouse together with the boat on the left, are just sufficient to make a very interesting picture.
