Thursday evening 19th July 2012
First sunny Thursday evening for a month. We are at Gwennap Head. No sitings of basking sharks or choughs but we do see a seal enjoying the swell of the inshore sea. However we do get some sort of sunset. The next photo shows me making the Longships Lighthouse look small.
The above photo was taken with a long lens. Below is a photo take by me, from where I am standing in the above photo, about 10 minutes after the sun had gone down. It is taken with a 25mm wide angle lens and look how small the lighthouse now appears.
Just before the sun went down I took this shot of the lighthouse. The whole scene was bathed in an orange glow but I have changed it in photoshop to show the blue sea and highlight the magical sea mist. A busy shipping lane passes west of the lighthouse. I didn’t bother cloning out the ship.
