Later in the day when the tide was on the turn, a trip to Seaham Lighthouse in county Durham was called for. Seaham always gives a great show when the waves are crashing so I knew that I would have a chance to get something dramatic. Using a long lens from a distance helps to compress the waves and lighthouse making it even more dramatic but shooting at such a distance has its draw back due to all the moisture in the air which reduces the sharpness on the image. Not to mention the strength of the wind as it tried to thwart my attempts! Still, this location was defiantly the best of the day.
Finally, the last stop of the day was Roker in Tyne and Wear as the light was starting to fade. Its a lighthouse you will have seen frequently on these pages and its so close to home but every visit yields a different image. Even though I had missed the best of the waves it was still a great sight to see as the weather gave its final daylight assault on this iconic Wearside landmark.
