Life Savers

By jeanie    
.... Speaks for itself I guess.

I wanted something a little different from the usual lighthouse shot and I noticed that Trev had video'd the lighthouse from this angle so "borrowed" his idea..

I took the shot late evening before sunset, and the moon is even there to the right of the top of the lighthouse.


I hope this works but if not, feel free to mod and offer up your ideas.

[i]1/4 sec @ F/22, iso 100, 24mm lens.

Just my sort of thing this Jeanie - I can well imagine that this is the shot I would have taken at this place. Full marks thenSmile)!
So sad that these foghorns are no longer used, it was a wonderful, mournful sound.
Good stuff.

Thanks Jason.

Richard, thanks indeed. This foghorn is still working although, thankfully, we were not entertained by it except when the wind blew in a certain direction, causing my younger dog to practically unscrew his head going from side to side in an inquisitive nature, wondering what the heck the noise was!

Mr RicoChoco - a poet! LOL! Excellent, made me laugh! Thanks.

Brian it is a bright red - I think it lost something whe working on it - off to re-calibrate my screen but then if I had uploaded it vivid, you'd have no mod to do hee hee, and then what would you do : )

Teresa - By all means - the cliffs are good for that too.
