One from yesterday Morning at 06:30 from the rocks at Javea on the Mediterranean coast.
The dawn sky was just starting to change but wanted to capture the light house beam on the water.
A 5 min exposure at F11.

Thanks for looking and will try and catch up with everyone as the week progresses.

Regards Richard

You've caught the lighthouse well Richard, nice long exposure, I guess you didn't shoot many at this time of the night?

Thanks Phil, Bernie and Dougie.
It took a couple of mornings to get this to work, as you only had a short window of times before it got too light.

Illustrates the problem with the Med, all it's lights confusing Turtles. I'm sure this is not a Turtle area, but if it were they would go the wrong way. Excellent image of this location and being up early on holiday ! Richard. Ron.

Okay I'm convinced I vow to take my tripod on holiday..get up early and use the thing..this has convinced me to give it a try...beautiful.

technical question[from me heck I'm ill).how come with such a long exposure you manage a narrow light beam..thought it would play across the water..or is it a static beam?

Outstanding scene, color and exposure
The light from the lighthouse (assuming) with the glare across the water is that extra that makes this top notch!
