The Happisburgh Lighthouse was built in1790 as part of a pair. It is still operating today (it is the oldest operating lighthouse in East Anglia) and the only oldest independent running lighthouse in Britain being run by volunteers.
My cousin, who lives in Norfolk, took us here on our 1 year anniversary. I've pulled it from my archives as an image for Norfolk as I attempt to visit every county in the UK eventually.

Nice composition, I like how you've positioned those buildings on one side and leave an open space on right side.
I believe that a simple frame can help on these pictures w/o many details.

A very simple photo where the lighthouse seems out of place when there is no visible ocean. The brilliant green crop in the foreground really enhances the photo. TFS, Marlene

This picture is really well done. Composition is simple but perfect. Colors are just saturated enough. There are few details, but they are important. The tree, the lighthouse and the two fireplaces give the charm of this image.
