A shimmering sea creates plenty of contrasting light in the vicinity of Britain’s most southerly lighthouse at La, Corbiere, Jersey. This view was captured from the carpark to the north of the causeway as the sun poked through some breaks in the high cloud. Thanks for looking.

A long exposure (13 seconds) of the lighthouse and headland of Trevose on the north Cornwall coast. The sun had set about 15 minutes earlier to the left, creating a pinkish afterglow. Thanks for viewing.

This is La Corbiere Lighthouse near St Brelade, Jersey, captured against shafts of sunlight peeping through altocumulus. The lighthouse was the first in the British Isles to be constructed of concrete.

Start Point and its lighthouse captured on a breezy spring afternoon. The sun was 90 degrees to my right so the scene was asking to be polarised, bringing out the clouds, bluebells and colours in the sea. Thanks for looking.

Armed Forces Day was held on Plymouth Hoe today. While my wife went swimming in the pool of the Holiday Inn, I ventured up to the penthouse restaurant and captured the activity below. Despite shooting through glass, I was amazed at how clear the image came out – viewed at 100% I was able to make out motives on people’s tee-shirts! [Just learnt that the Prime Minister was down there too - perhaps I could do a "Where's Wally"!] Thanks for viewing.
