Wonderful shot, Stephen! Love the structure and delicate color in the clouds, and their vanishing point perspective. Also love the hint of green in the foreground. Really well done, all the way around! Thanks for sharing!

beautiful shot of this spot..once again, jealous of the contour of the land out there, as opposed to flat, flat, here!!!

22 Mar 2009 2:40pm

@Susan: Ah, I guess we are never fully content in these matters. I covet the warm waters around your flat land. The waters here are so cold they make your feet (or any other body parts) burn with pain when you first come in contact.

Querques from Palleja, Spain

This is nice Stephen. I really like the sensation of depth in your photo. The composition is almost perfect as the colours and tones. Really nice!. Well done

Very very nice. I love the clouds with the sun peaking though. Makes me want to sign up work in that lighthouse it my evenings could be spend on the rocks watching sunsets like this.

Lovely image. Looks like a great lighthouse.

23 Mar 2009 5:38pm

@Steve Rice: A great classic lighthouse - but in pretty bad shape - in need of major repairs. You can't get too close as major chucks of the building have fallen to the ground below. An external modern light provides service. Still, they manage to get in and fire the main light once a year.

Scott Schilling from San Martin, United States

Beautiful image Stephen - I love the sky reflections across the water - wonderful photograph!
