St Mary's Lighthouse
Last week I spent a few days on the Northumberland coast visiting a friend and doing a little landscape photography. The weather was somewhat mixed and I didn't achieve as much photographically as I was hoping. I made a couple of visits to St Mary's Lighthouse, on the outskirts of Whitley Bay, once for sunset and once for sunrise. On neither visit was I gifted with a great sky. On my sunset trip there was nothing but cloud. For my sunrise visit, a couple of days later, the sky was clear except for a thin band of cloud on the horizon (the curse of seascape photos). Still, I am quite pleased with the first image below, taken with the aid of a 10 stop filter.
