I don't even remember seeing this tiny lighthouse at the time this photo was taken.  It is a small are cropped from a larger (and drearily unsuccessful landscape shot).  It wasn't until I began researching the information for the Norway page that I realised that I had inadvertently managed to capture Stangskjærrabben Fyr.  The light itself is situated close to the Heggholmen light (q.v.) and, as well as serving a general navigation beacon is also a sector light with a bewildering array of sectors, specifically two white, two red, and three green - seven in total.
