La Corbière can be found at the extreme south-western point of Jersey, in St. Brelade. It is probably the most photographed landmark of the channel island, and is known for its lovely panoramic views and the extreme tidal activity. Victorian engineer Sir John Coode is responsible for the design by which the lighthouse is built. It was the first lighthouse in the British Isles to be built of reinforced concrete and was lit for the first time on the 24th of April, 1874. The beam of light has a reach of 18 nautical miles. which is a brilliant distance. The lighthouse finally became automated in 1976 and was no longer manned.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    Brilliant Bradly… love the contrast.

  • Thank you so much. As the light was fading, I decided to stay instead of leave as everyone else seem to be doing. I managed to get this shot. I did lift the shadow a small bit, but this is true to what it looked like. A simply stunning evening. I do so like this place. I appreciate your kind compliment.

    That’s a nice shot Bradly. The rocks and the sea make a beautiful contrast.

  • Thanks for that mate. I really appreciate the lovely compliment. I try every year to get a unique shot of this lovely lighthouse. I stayed a bit longer after sunset than I usually do. I was very pleased with the result. :-)
