Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun!

By MrsS    
Got fed up with looking at all the fabulous lighthouse shots that have been uploaded lately, and I'm really missing them, so here's one from the Menai meet last year.

The sunrise at Penmon was SPECTACULAR to say the least, with the locals telling us they hadn't seen 'owt like it for ages!

Hope I've made the most of it Smile

Had to run a noise reduction program on this as since it was the morning after the night before, I'd managed to set my ISO at 400 Sad
(Memo to self - - 1 glass of red less next time?? Wink )

1/4sec @f14.1 ISO400 Sad Filters 'n' Stuff!

and the title? We'll this was the meet where GIRLS VERY LOUD was formed, and WE DID Tongue

Thanks for taking a peek, almost the weekend, will try to catch up with you all later, off out for tea tonight! Smile
