Lighthouses make great subjects, whencomposed decently,don't they? As for this one, I liked the idea of establishing a relation with the rockyforeground imbued by the same delightful light complimenting the subject matter

Hi Bill!

Good to see you "back"! I love the steep dramatic cliff face and interesting foreground (is that bull kelp washed up on top of the rocks?)! The evening sun (I guess it's evening sun setting over there in California providing deep rich colours too are appreciated!

In the second (practise rescue photo) the sharp definition and contrast between lighthouse, sky and dangling "rescuee" are well captured.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Hi Paul and thanks for your comments. That is not kelp but rather a root "ball" from a small tree. I thought it interesting for a forground and when you print it out .. You just kind of look at it for a while trying to figure out what the heck it is. The late evening sun being orange really made this photo work.

Here is another shot of the cliff rescue practice. I never even saw the sea gull fly across the screen until I was in post processing the photos. The gull is out of focus but I thought you may find this a very busy photo. Waves, helicopters, sea gulls, and if you zoom in there are actually people in the lighthouse lamp room.

Enjoy.

This is even better than the one before incuding the seaAgain the colours look so nice!

The gull contributes to the spirit of activity:-) addinga dimensional object as well !

This pic. calls for one more

Don't admit it! It's wonderful! Seagulls to the rescue!

I had the same happen to me the other day, when photographing a pair of statues of "The Liver Birds" on top of a building across the Mersey Estuary. There also happened to be a maritime object in the vicinity as well.

I've had endless fun ever since explaining how carefully planned it was. Of course I am scrupulous, eventually, to explain to the naive that seeing the seagulls on 'replay' was an amazingly pleasant surprise.

Have fun with your camera!
