    A stunner. It looks even better on the big monitor than it looked in the back of your 5DII.

    Still drying shoes 🙂

    Ooooh Richard I love lighthouses and photos of them, but this is by far the most unusual and striking lighthouse photo I’ve ever seen.

    Could you elaborate on this? Just because I do not know even a pinch about photography compared to others. However, I want to know. Is this enhanced in any way? How do you get this? At night? It is wonderful!
