The Lighthouse on St Mary’s Island, Tyne and Wear, UK

Some days it is difficult to find a photo for the POTD.  Today was one of those days.  I’ve not been out of the house, I’ve spent most of the day battling with my accounts so nothing really seems appropriate.  So I’ve looked through the database and found this picture of St Mary’s Lighthouse, Tyne and Wear.  Just a random picture.

For the photographers who read this POTD: to get this effect, I’ve used a tobacco graduated filter combined with a sunset filter.  Then in on the computer I’ve digitally removed the orange cast from the sunset filter which leave the foreground very desaturated.  (Before anyone comments, yes I have been told that tobacco graduate filters is very 1980s – but I still like the effect!)
