St Mary's Lighthouse

For the Geordie ex-pats out there. I was in the north east of England today. All three pics taken with the Sony RX100 on aperture priority.

I especially like No. 2 - looks very bleak and desolate and a nice moody sky!

Great shots! I also really liked the second one, the sky is great and the emptiness in the right side of the photo makes it look, like GTI said, pretty desolate. Good job :)

Thanks GTI, Piero. The little camera is really good for getting shots like this when the opportunity presents while I'm out on the road.

This area was a holiday playground as a youngster. Always good to see it again.

Ah St Mary's! took many a blurred picture here as an ambitious teenager. Will try and fish them out.

Love the snaps.
