What a pity that the lighthouse isn´t in use anymore. The time of day (or should I say evening) would have been just right for the rays of light of the lighthouse.
I LIKE it, especially the reflections in the water.

ILIKE this great picture , good light on the lighthouse!!! Ciao,Dino

Herb Riddle on September 10, 2012

Petr, Ann, Andy, Marina, Erik, Ewa and Dino, my friends. Delighted that you all like my latest photo here. I hurriedly did a 15km round trip to capture this in the sunset but got there too late to get this with the setting sun itself. However, it did leave this magical after-glow which I tried to capture here. Yes Ewa, it would have been great with a shaft of light from the lighthouse into a bit of low mist too :), but can't have everything!

Special thanks for the great awards.

Best wishes, Herb

Hi Herb,

Many thanks for your kind comment but mine doesn't stand up to this at all :) A really fabulous image that I have added to my favourites. ( I also liked your inverted previous version :) :) )

I shall be sure to take a tour of your gallery

Very best wishes


Herb Riddle on September 11, 2012

AJ30, Jean-Luc, Trovag, Gary, Dušan and **Artem, great to see you all here again and liking this latest shot of mine. Great when after putting in a little bit of extra effort we find it pays off with comments and awards like you give me. Special thanks for the YSL, Artem.

Cheers, Herb

Herb Riddle on September 11, 2012

Hi Dean, great that you managed to skip over her to see this and with that I bid you welcome to my gallery. Yes, this one is nice but somewhat different to yours which I like immensely too. Special thanks for the YS that you grant this. Will talk to you again soon.

Cheers, Herb
