Lighthouse in Russia

The website, English Russia has a fantastic photo collection of a series of abandoned lighthouses that dot along the northern coast of Russia.

What makes these lighthouses unique is not the fact that they are very old, extremely remote, abandoned, falling apart, looted or just plain scary looking, it's that they were powered by a small atomic energy powerplant which could keep them going completely automated for years on end.

Sunk Boats Frozen in Ice and Time

Sunken Ship

 

Abandoned Ship



I love the blog English Russia. Their tag line is, "Just because something cool happens daily on 1/6 of the earths surface". Rarely does it ever have anything to do with canoes or kayaks but who cares when they post photos like the ones above. I love big rusty stuff and there is a lot of that in different parts of Russia.


The link has a great collection of photos of abandoned ships half sunk in the ice that were taken somewhere near Kamchatka, Russia.

There is something about abandoned boats that completely scare me. I fully expect something scary to jump out and eat me even these are only photos. Don't tell anybody but I also have a hard time watching the cool boat search scene from the movie, "The Usual Suspects".
