This site shows photos of lighthouses and beacons in different countries by Guus Mahler (1980). They are the result of his many trips along the coast and led him to impressive spots. These lights on the edge of land and water have many appearances varying from industrial lattice towers up to beautifully detailed cast iron towers . They are surrounded by heavy industry or are built on beautiful deserted islands. This versatility makes these objects to a willing subject for photographers. That's why photographing lighthouses is still his great passion.
