Lighthouse. St Marys Island, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom.

Today’s photo is another image from my 2005 trip to the North East of England.  This time it is St Mary’s Lighthouse.

The day we went there the weather was not brilliant and it was difficult to get any decent shots of the lighthouse.  This was about the best I could do durring the morning.  I’ve tried to make the image more dramatic by using a neutral density filter to darken the sky.

As the day went on the weather improved and we returned to the lighthouse again later that same afternoon.  You can see a shot I took on the second visit that day on my POTD entry for that day:  http://www.imb.biz/page.php?pg=diary&d=2005-09-10
