Made it to #portlandBill #dorset

Portland Bill Lighthouse, built in 1906. The Portland Race is caused by the meeting of the tides between the Bill and the Shambles sandbank, strong currents break the sea so fiercely that from the shore a continuous disturbance can be seen.
I think there's something magical about a lighthouse. You can climb to the top here and view at close hand the bulb and lens that warn vessels 🚒
I love the two young children playing in the foreground.

We decided to end the day with a visit to #PortlandBill #Lighthouse on #IsleOfPortland in the dark. #Scary but #Cool

'Outpost'
.
Continuing my series of images from Dorset. I'd made the journey to the isle of Portland, with the plan to shoot the Portland Bill lighthouse. When I arrived it was pretty much midday, in bright sunshine and blue skies, not really my preferred conditions for photography. Within an hour however conditions changed dramatically as they often do in coastal areas. Dark grey skies, with the sun occasionally poking through and lighting up areas, I love that juxtaposition of dark and light. The scene here is just to east of the lighthouse, I loved the geometric shapes of the winch. I'd already pre-visualised the scene in my mind, so on arriving home it didn't take long to process at all.
