The 1859 Needles Lighthouse off the western tip of the Isle of Wight, England recently got a fresh coat of paint by some daring painters.

The lighthouse tender THV Galatea is shown in the distance. The THV Galatea is a lighthouse tender operated by Trinity House, the organization responsible for the operation of lighthouses and marine navigation aids around the coasts of England, Wales, and the Channel Islands.
