Taken on a Camera Club night and dedicated to Ronnie - one of his youthful haunts.
I was thrilled by your response to my Ladybird Triptych and thank you all for
wonderful comments, votes and special thank you to ColleenW, Martin(buxton),
Carol(Caziwinkles), and Billy(williamsloan) for their very generous User Awards.
As they say here in Scotland -I'm well chuffed!

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.

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!
