Turnberry Lighthouse

By annettep38  
Here is one for Ronnie: Turnberry Lighthouse and the Mull of Kintyre, South Argyll.

My prize for the funniest answer goes to Mick Bee , I told him the ginger biscuits would suit him as they are made of future rust.
The most clever answer came from Mossy Oak, it really looks like an air gun pellet.
And here is the solution:
It is a snapped half shaft, made of high tensile steel. But if some put enormous wheels on their Land Rovers, the momentum on the best shaft does not withstand long tem wear, You will see the same effect on drill rig milling shafts, Circular saw shafts etc.

I enjoyed every bit of the game and your participation really brightened up the day.

A beautiful seascape and classic lighthouse shot. Good work on the sky exposure and keeping the white lighthouse properly exposed as well.
Nice one, Annette.

Much better than any of my shots of Turnberry Lighthouse

I especially like the detail and colour in f/g rocks.

Hi Annette ~

This reallly is a smashing picture. Only one wee point and it has got nothing to do with the image, but that is the Isle of Arran in the background and not the Mull of Kintyre as stated in the description.

Beautiful coastal landscape photography!
The contrasting colours of the sky and the lighthouse are fascinating, great composition too.
