Blog 43 - Dovercourt Lighthouse
At the 2017 photography show I watched an Adobe Seminar with Paul Saunders a truly inspirational photographer and really is on another level and one of his images flashed up up of Dovercourt Lighthouse, it was just a beautiful image so this place was put in my little black book and earmarked for a visit.
So had the chance to visit I new going at this time of the year the weather really wasn’t going to be how i had it picture in my head i wanted a dull misty day but instead had a sunny bright day, so the 10 or 15 stop filter would be needed.
There are actually two lighthouse 200m apart one on the beach and the one I photographed they have been scheduled as ancient monument by English Heritage back in 1975, The lighthouses, commissioned by Trinity House in 1862 and completed in 1863, served to guide ships towards Harwich harbour (some 1.5km to the north) their different heights enabling the two lights to be aligned on approach.
My long exposure was 210 seconds and I just love the way Lighthouse sits within the view, one of my favourite places visited in 2018
