Bosfor Vostochnyy Range Lights, Vladivostok

The Bosfor Vostochnyy (Eastern Bosporus) is a narrow strait north of Russkiy Island, leading directly to the port of Vladivostok on Russia's east coast. A series of three range lights in Vladivostok guide vessels on this passage. Special thanks to Maxim Pismak of Vladivostok for these photos of the three range lights.

Note: The Middle and Rear Lights are built on a design very common on Russia's Pacific coast: octagonal concrete towers painted white with a black vertical stripe on the range line.
