Hi Steve, glad you like this one. As for being in the right place, I had been here in 2006 (see the link in the intro) and also in the same morning of taking this. I have got a few nice pictures of the morning shots. I was stopping approx 6 miles from here and saw the red sky's of this sunset then rushed down here to grab the sunset and lighthouse picture but when I arrived, it was too late, the sun had dipped below the horizon. But... I got this instead and so am not moaning. You need not take up knitting as your shots are excellent. Just be mad enough to run around like a headless chicken for these pictures.

Cheers, Herb

Hi again Jan. Very happy you like this sunset. Even with this shot I had difficulty as to whether or how to crop this. A wide picture or a portrait just concentrating on the lighthouse both looked OK too. As you can see, ended up with almost the full original shot. Might put another of these up here though?

Regards, Herb
