This is really good photography, Ian. You are dabbling in areas of excellence. Any more like this and you'll have to get a bigger DLSR and go professional.

It's fantastic Ian!

I like it very much! Is this a lighter version of the one you had or a different one? Either way it's brilliant!

Smiles! Happy Spring, GG:)

Thanks for the compliment Si. Professinal! There's only going to be one professinal and it's not going to be me.

Hi GG It's just a lighter version I thought the other was too dark. Happy spring to you too.

Glad you posted this one Ian, I agree the other one was a bit too dark. It looks like you're really into night shooting now,i wonder where the inspiration came from!!

Hi Neil I'm not giving any prizes for guessing where the inspiration came from, I'm thinking you might have been inspired by the same person.

I quite like lighthouses too thanks for the comment.

Dee Wainwright on June 19, 2011

I am the light, holding
Nightly my torch on high; Under me surge the waters, Over me bends the sky.

Year after year I stand here Holding my steady light, Sending its ray of comfort Into the darkest night.

Many a man has served me, Tending the Light with care, Many a vanished footstep Passed by my winding stair.

Years pass and men pass with them, Never my light grows dim, One hands the torch to another, Others will follow him.

So are the centuries moving, Still serving men am I, Constant through gales of winter Calm beneath summers sky.

Lights are the hope of seamen, Warning of rock and shoal, We are the danger-stations, We are the sea-patrol!
