This is a severely cropped section of a an photograph that showed a ship entering the port of Zeebrugge.  I hadn't realised that the structure in the background was a harbour light until I started to do the research for this site - and that applies equally to the other final images on this page.  This is the light on the East Breakwater at the entrance to Zeebrugge harbour.  The large black, billboard-like structure to the right of the tower in this shot, when seen from seaward, displays a series of control lights that are used to signal inbound ships.  In common with the other Zeebrugge lights I have no information regarding access to this site - however, from the total absence of people on the mole, I would guess that public access is not possible.
