This short, square range light on a rock near the entrance to Helsinki harbour has no lantern.  Instead it has a very short post light situated on top of the tower and surrounded by what appears to be a guard rail.  Again, the tower colour is listed as black but this appears to have been pretty much weathered away.  Alex Trabas has an undated photo here that shows the paintwork in much fresher condition, so I assume that some renovation has been done since 2008.
