Chilly and early start this morning, but thankfully not very far to drive for a sunrise shoot at the ever popular St Mary's Lighthouse in Whitley Bay. Fortunately for me the tide receded just in time for the causeway to be crossed where I made a hasty and extremely slippery beeline behind the lighthouse to capture the concrete pillar that protrudes from the sea. This structure (after a good deal of digging around) was apparently built in 1914 and used as a rangefinder for coastal defence guns at Tynemouth Priory. Here are a selection of images from this morning's shoot. Please click on any image to purchase.
