Inside Phare des Baleines on Ile de Re, near to La Rochelle. I know there have been a few of these but I do like the spiral of lighthouse staircases and I was quite pleased with this shot, particularly with the people to give scale.

Posted By csurry : Rotated 180 degrees, just seemed to 'read' better as an image. Added new layer, applied Gaussian Blur at 5.0. Blended using Darken. The used Hue/Saturation Colorize Mode Hue 243/ Sat 25. To make it look like the inside of a shell, to give it a mother of pearl kind of look.
