LIGHTHOUSE POSTCARD FROM RUSSIA

Tanya from Belarus sent me this postcard to my lighthouse collection. This beautiful sunset image shows the lighthouse located on the breakwater of the harbor at Sochi, Russia.  The 16 m (52 ft) round masonry tower (painted red with one white horizontal band) stands at the mouth of Sochi River, exactly where its muddy water enters the Black Sea.
On June 10th, 2008 Belarus Postal Administration issued two definitive stamp series: five fauna stamps and eight flower stamps. On the postcard we can see two mammals: the 300 BYR hare (Lepus europaeus) and the 400 BYR wolf (Canis lupus).
The garden flowers depicted on the stamps are the 30 BYR petunia (Petunia hybrida) and the 50BYR narcissus (Narcissus hybridus).
