What great lighting with the lighthouse so bright and the background dark, makes for a very beautiful and dramatic image.

Hi Anette

What a glorious photograph. You caught not only the lighthouse but that feeling you get when you know that a storm is coming. One for the saved list.

Regards Steven

Thank you for your nice comments and votes Fai and kerly!

Glad you like the dramatic illumination Steven! Luckily the clouds just moved over without drenching us so the weather didn't turn out this bad in the end.

Friendly greetings, Anette
