Shine the light


Eaglewood Films created this drone video of Miķeļbāka, the tallest lighthouse in Latvia.  It lies on the south side of the main passageway that connects the Baltic Sea to the Gulf of Riga.  The original lighthouse here was built in 1884, but was damaged during World War I and later dismantled.  The second lighthouse was blown up by Soviet forces during the early months of the German invasion of the USSR in World War II.  The current structure, which stands 56 meters or about 180 ft., was built in 1957.
