Trevose Lighthouse, sitting on Trevose Head, Cornwall, UK. I was positioned about 70ft up but that swell kept coming and I thought I was sheltered from the high winds! Luckily I just caught the spray, which was a nightmare to wipe off my filters and kit.

This is the Haceta Head Lighthouse, just north of Florence, Oregon. I've posted this one before but after some helpful suggestions from +David Sanger I'm much happier with it now!

Now that I'm on my way back to Oregon I hope to get many more shots in this area.

Have a great weekend!

New Years Wave Action

Slow start to a winter season here on Okinawa, but mother nature let us know today we are not forgotten, nice 30-40 foot wave length and 8 to 9 foot wave heights made for some times down the coast.

The one image that has to be part of any selection of lighthouse images

The Wave Swept Lighthouses of Brittany, France ... "The province of Brittany, in North-western part of France, forms a large peninsula that stretches towards the Atlantic Ocean bordered by the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. The waters located between the western coast and Ushant island form the Iroise Sea. This section of the coastline of Brittany remains one of the most dangerous seas in Europe with frequent violent storms, huge waves and strong currents. Over thirty ships were lost in this region between 1888 and 1904. Because of this, the rugged coastline is crowded with lighthouses - more than one third of all the lighthouses and fire towers illuminating the French coast are located here. These granite fortresses have been warning distant sailors of the dangers of this jagged coastline and treacherous rocks since the 18th century. ..." ... http://www.amusingplanet.com/2014/11/the-wave-swept-lighthouses-of-brittany.html

This is a another take on the famed Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Mount Desert Island in Maine. This image was made late in the afternoon under soft overcast skies to create a different feeling on the Lighthouse. I also wanted to capture a bit of action on the waves. Hope you like it.

I'm a computer scientist working as a Senior Consultant for a software company ... and I like photography.

Story

I love photography.
Introduction
I'm a NIKON

On my day job I am a senior technical consultant at a market leading software company. I work on workflows all day and at night I practice on my own workflow. The former I do for over 15 years and the latter for more than a year now. So your constructive critique on my images is always appreciated. 

I am a moderator of the HQSP Community and I am working on #HQSPPortraits / +HQSP Portraits there. Once a week it's an honor to me to select the images for the HQSP Pyramid at +HQSP Gold.


Every other week I host the bi-weekly, alternating daily photo themes #LighthouseThursday / 
#NotALighthouseThursdayThisWeek 

... and I'm exploring the various ways of digital photo manipulation ... I love to slide the controllers, to experiment and to watch what happens to the image ...

Don't force me to shrink my images to 500px or to blemish them with a signature, please.


Why I don't circle you back ?

Because 
  • you don't have a profile.
  • you don't share anything public
  • you don't share periodically
  • you aren't a photographer or interested in photography
  • my circles are close to the limit and I have to be selective on who I circle back. I can only circle 5K and by having 10K+ people circling me I simply just can't circle everyone back.
So don't circle me just to get circled by me.

I might circle you for two weeks, if you contribute to one of my daily photo themes for statistical reasons. But every two weeks I have to clean up those circles to make room for new contributors, so don't get mad on me for that,please.
