  1. Exquisite, I just love this…..
    I’m a sucker for lighthouses, and this image is wonderful, ad perfect for the theme. The toning suites it so well too.

      Thanks Marie. I dug this one out of the archives! I was trying for that ‘vintage’ look with the Sepia which I think suits the subject matter quite well.

    Hi John this has a great sense of scale and depth. The letterbox format adds. Thanks Andy

      Thanks Andy. I don’t usually like to crop my pictures much but I felt like this one needed it – the foreground wasn’t adding to the image. Thanks for commenting.

    Love that small silhouette. It is full of ‘atmosphere’, I can almost smell a salted humidity!

    As there hasn’t been a new WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge so far this week, perhaps you’d like to join in the Weekly Travel Theme http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/09/28/travel-theme-foliage/ xxx Ailsa
