Covesea Skerries on a bright day

By annettep38  
Your comments regarding my tulips were very interesting. I enjoyed ALL your comments , whether you liked the background or not. Just let me say that the actual flower was presented as in the original exposure and remained un-tweaked. The background was simply done using various photoshop brushes and a bit of cloning. Than I used topaz clean, adjust and detail to get the dose of texture. I'll be a bit gentler with the brushes next time Smile

This is from my archives ( still April rain here) and goes specially to Ronnie and all Scots on the forum.

Thank you for the mention, Annette, and I'm sure all my fellow Scots will appreciate this dedication. You are for sure quite far north for this shot on the Moray Firth amd have documented this fine lighthouse so well in a nice crisp shot

A very pristine lighthouse, and what a wonderful place or the keeper to live--- Beautifully photographed!

As to FACE--- I do not think so as it was located near the ship with the flags---- however, I do not know what it is----likely a huge engine for a fishing boat.!

Stunning shot and an amazing sky, love it... I have one on my portfolio of a light house on the Great ocean Road her in Australia, it is very recognisable because the image is used for a UK kids tv show which is odd...

Wow Annette, this is a stunner!

A stunning image, pity about the two cars, but still an image which ticks all the right boxes.

I know this lighthouse well, Annette as I was born in Lossiemouth (Dad was stationed at RAF Kinloss). I think this is the best photo I have seen of this beautiful structure.
My weird sense of humour made me think of eight normal sized chimneys and a new neighbour who meant size does matterWink, but it's not a chimney, is it...sorry, my over-active imagination on the go again.
