The Picture, The Story!
My thought here was to capture the Lighthouse from the other side, I was aiming for something different.
As I walked past the Lighthouse and got to the rocks, I spotted an inlet and instantly thought that it would be a great leading line for the photograph.
To get to exactly where I wanted to be I had to step across a ravine, luckily, I was wearing my wellies and the fact that I’m well over 6ft tall was a big advantage! Safety first though, I could see the tide going out, so I knew I was ok.
I positioned myself at the edge of the sea, one step backwards and I would have been in it!
As I set up the shot, I wanted to slow down the movement of the water to lead you into the Lighthouse. The sun was setting, and the sky and water colours were very similar.
I managed to capture exactly what I wanted. If you look really closely to the right of the white house, just down from the wall you can even see a seal trapped on the rocks, which I didn’t see myself until I processed the picture.
This is one of my favourites!
