Tavern Light

By rhiw_com  
Porthdinllaen, 52 56N, 4 34W

Taken about three mins after Harbour Lights II. I liked the reflection of the Tavern light on the stone work.

F22, 10 sec, Lens @ 17 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter, 7:35am.

Please view...LARGE...if you can.

Hope you like it, and many thanks for commenting on my last upload.

Regards to you all, Tony
