A light in the dark...

I love lighthouses and after seeing a couple of pictures of lighthouses on the other side of the world on PB yesterday I thought I'd post a picture of one of my favourites.

This is the lighthouse at Beachy Head on the south coast of England. While it is spectacular and the cliffs rising above it are dramatic, it has also become notorious as a place where people commit suicide… seems like every silver lining has a cloud.

      The composition really shows the size of that rock...
      I'm not going to visit that rock, my fear of hights is already having problems with the picture....

      ...Lovely place to bash the head against the rocks.
      Are those people waiting in line ?! ;)
      One should save the camera at least. The composition and colours are so worth it.

      Well it certainly looks dangerous from the top! Quite dramatic, I'm somewhat surprised the lighthouse isn't at the TOP of the cliff...
