Perch Rock Lighthouse, New Brighton

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 13 February 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Despite the lousy weather forecast for what was supposed to be a very wet and stormy Winter morning, first light at Perch Rock lighthouse on the Wirral peninsula on Saturday was absolutely spectacular.

It was one of those occasions when it was a real joy to a be a landscape photographer.

An hour or so after taking this photo the weather started to close in and the lighthouse was framed by a succession of rainbows. It was truly a memorable morning to be out with a camera.

Looks like a classic. Anyway, there is something special, maybe the delicacy of the tones. I love the fact only a part of the lighthouse being reflected.
