I couldn't resist taking this shot as it makes it look as if the lighthouse rises from the centre of the round house, plus I find the two eyes and mouth on the lighthouse amusing Wink

I am pleased you liked my first offering of the lighthouse, and I thank you all for viewing, commenting and voting GrinGrinGrin. And yes I suppose it is unusual to see one painted black, but it did originally have a very large central section painted white.

The Roundhouse was originally built around the base of the previous lighthouse as accommodation etc for the lighthouse employees ... here is a link for further interesting facts and some old photographs :

I think I prefer this to the last one as it is better balanced. Great colour and as already been mentioned the exposure is perfectGrin
