Places where lighthouses are situated usually have (1) strong winds (2) high waves and salt spray. Bring a plastic bag to cover camera in between exposures.






for this photo, was inspired by outdoor photography mag. Given the amount of salt water that hit the lens, i'm glad it was a cheap sigma rather than an AF-S.





Shooting straight into the sun with a Cokin 1-stop grey grad and a Sigma Lens :) I have no good dawn photos to show of this lighthouse because the gale force winds (I had to hold the tripod down) made all the photos blur.





The scene directly to the right. The cliff face glowed orange. You can see the cliff edge because I decided against standing at the cliff edge due to the wind.

the first one is near Weymouth, the other is near Holyhead, UK. There are some good lighthouse-fanatic sites on the web if you want to look for lighthouses to photograph
