Been plotting this one for months, waiting for the weather and conditions to play ball.

5am start this morning, absolute ballache of a drive, FREEZING cold, and spiked my hand like a teabag falling down a cliff.

But hopefully it was worth it 🤘

Superb photograph.

The people that run the lighthouse would probably like a copy of that to hang on a wall.

Beautiful shot! I looks like you even timed the light as it cam around.
Thanks @Kendallfordguy . The light was just fluke really. I took about 30 pano's and only a handful caught the light. The Spark has a delay from pressing the shoot button to when the actual pano starts recording, so I gave up trying to time it correctly and just shot loads of options instead :)

Of all of them, I think this one had all of the elements I was looking for - from the vapour trails and moon in the sky, to the main lighthouse light and even the little red light in the window below it, which I didn't see until I moved around for a different angle. It's a stunning location and I was gutted when I burned through all of my batteries, but I'll be heading back there in the near future ;)

It looks like HDR, even the dark foreground is actually bright and full of details.

What a beautiful and well prepared shot!!!!!!

All the others have said it but one other point-you’ve got the rule of thirds sorted. It works every time. Superb shot. Only just got round to reading the week’s digest, where has the daily news gone?
