Lighthouses are endlessly suggestive signifiers of both human isolation and our ultimate connectedness to each other

A recent evening stroll on the beach rewarded me with this image. Sunset looked promising, i was hoping the sky would light up with the setting sun however an hour beforehand clouds moved in. i got talking to another photographer on the beach clearly with the same plan. he was packing up when i got there because there wasn’t going to be a sunset. In agreement i decided to to have wonder around and look for compositions. As the sun passed down over the horizon the light changed, this spectacular bank of cloud moved in and i had change of plan. It was over with in minutes and i gad i went.

I’ve had some people ask how it was shot so i decided this would be a good starting point for my youtube tutorial series.
