Taken at about 8.30am today at Fort Perch with an amazing wild sky line and a strong " high tide " ,got really wet pushing my luck for the right shot.
horizon and lighthouse are a bit central but i think it works o.k. here ,wanted to show both the sky and the foreground.
Any comments would be welcome.

The centre works very well. Who said it has to be in the 3rd of the scene to make it a good photo? I would give it 10 out of 10 if I had my way. It is scary trying to take a photo with rough conditions. Well done.
