I visited possibly the most photographed lighthouse in the North East. It is an area that reminds me of my childhood and my father’s depiction of this icon in black and white. He used a camera that used 127 size film (I think that was it’s name anyway). It was between the size of 120 roll film and 35mm film, and the image quality was superb! He worked in black and white because he did all his own film and print processing, and as I got older he showed me how too. I have also performed B&W processing at home, and a couple of my efforts are on RB.
However, the weather was great to start with as I walked across the causeway to the lighthouse. Fortunately it was low tide! I had the idea of using a low viewpoint to create a different look from the norm, and use the dark sky against the sun lit falic white lighthouse, but by the time I arrived and set up the tripod the sun was hidden by the clouds. However, the image was still there and possibly better due to the lack of contrast between the lit side and shadow side of the white building.
