Indeed, it does bring back many a happy memory, Kate, and you know the reason why: and surely this must be one of your best images of recent.
Beautiful end of day tones, light catching on the side of the tower and some detail retained in f/g shadowy areas, and all in such a pleasing composition.
Ronnie.

Ronnie has said it all - well almost! I love the beautiful, subtle colours in the sky and that magical little reflection on the lighthouse window.

A delightful lowlight capture, one which has been very well composed with interest from the off. Great colour and clarity throughout Kate

A well balanced composition, making good use of the thirds and diagonal line, Kate. Wonderful pastel colour in the sky and glow on the lighthouse. A beautiful landscape.

I really like this. I was back home a few weeks ago and took a photograph of the Cloch Lighthouse but my poor athletic knee wouldn't let me get down to this level. Well done a good capture.

A super compo with the diagonal foreground and the vertical lighthouse leaving enough space to the sea, far off hills and the fabulous sky. Love it.

I have to say that I agree with the others, this is one of your very best landscapes Kate. The composition is IMHO perfect, the late evening sky is full of delicious pastel colour and cloud and with the mountains in layers receding into the distance making the perfect background. Simply lovely. Oh how I wish I was there!
