Talacre Lighthouse

By geoffrey baker
I've been to North Wales for a week with my wife Susan, Andrew (Proberts), Julie (Jules41) and their son Jai.
We had a brilliant time, the weather was fairly good, we were very lucky, it could've been a lot worse and we managed to get quite a few photos.

A very big thankyou to Julie for sharing her camera with me, I dropped mine while unloading the car just minutes after arriving and it's not working any more.

Great colours, the reflections makes this one for me. Also the inclusion of the people give a good sense of scale.

Thanks everyone Smile
Thanks for the mods guys, I would've liked to have added a light to the lighthouse too but I didn't know how to.
This lighthouse didn't light up at all while we were there.

Lol Phil, hangover? I only had 2 pints of lager but not being a drinker my legs went a bit wobbly, I kept falling asleep in the pub and my head was spinning a bit, but apart from that I was ok Wink
I won't be trying to keep up with Mr Roberts on the lagers again, that's for sure.
Susan and Julie had to walk me back to the caravan cos Andrew was laughing too much to help lol.

Thanks Daz.
Gonna try sending it back for repairs first, I should be covered under my household policy for accidental damage, problem is that Sony has taken over Minolta now so my camera isn't made anymore, the Sony mount is the same but they don't yet have a DSLR that I'd like but they're due to release 2 new models in the Autumn.
My son has a new Sony A100 which I can borrow until then.
If Sony don't come up with the goods then I'll sell all my lenses and switch to Canon but that's a last resort.
I took this with a canon 350D and it was great to use.

I like Phil's mod, as I feel this is too dark and a bit flat, Geoff.
I would say just sell all your sony and minolta and move to Canon...You know it makes sense...

the silhouette of the lighthouse adds atmosphere and drama to this well composed image.

What an absolutely superb shot.
The beautiful and stunning clouds and colour, reflected so brilliantly in the water.
A truly stunning shot that deserves a lot more recognition.

Thanks Annette, yes, it does seem to be a bit quiet on here at the moment, never mind, at least it's had a RC Smile
