Pagan Eye: Sunrise, Sea and a Symbol of Hope
It being Easter you might think this photo shows a cross - a symbol of the Passion of Christ; his death and resurrection in Christian mythology. But it isn't.
Pictured is a view from the Sussex coast near Beachy Head, looking out to sea towards the sunrise and the Royal Sovereign Lighthouse. Not far from the Sussex coast's famous red-and-white lighthouse, the platform with a tower on top was built during the 1970s to replace an earlier lightship. It is a symbol of man's perpetual struggle to be safe at sea rather than anything religious. Nevertheless, it does make a nice Easter picture.
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.
