Good Morning Everyone,
This is Tynemouth Lighthouse. It stretches out on a long walkway, like an elegant finger pointing into the sea. The scale of the figures will indicate the length of the walkway.
This massive stone breakwater extends from the foot of the Priory some 900 yards (810 metres) out to sea, protecting the northern flank of the mouth of the River Tyne. It has a broad walkway on top, popular with Sunday strollers. On the lee side is a lower level rail track, formerly used by trains and cranes for loading ships. At the seaward end is a lighthouse. The pier's construction took over 40 years (1854–1895). In 1898 the original curved design proved inadequate against a great storm and the centre section was destroyed. The pier was rebuilt in a straighter line and completed in 1909. A companion pier at South Shields protects the southern flank of the river mouth - from Wikipedia
Tynemouth is a place I can recommend to photographers.
Have a great day, Bev :-)

A very well composed image with strong graphical lines. Good idea to include the strip of greenery in the foreground. I like the soft light and pastel blue tones of sea and sky. Very good clarity.

Interesantan tekst o stazi i svetioniku sa istorijom i opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa talasima na moru i oblacima.
Lep popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article about the track and lighthouse with a history and description, a nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice place and shown the moment, pretty colors.
Good work, nice captured moment with the waves in the sea and clouds.
A nice afternoon and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Fabulous perspective on the massive breakwater. Your note, along with a creative title, create an eyeful. In September we will be sailing along the Eastern Coast of Ireland, on a repositioning cruise from Southampton to Boston. I would love to have connected for a mini-Trearth meeting. Unhappily, we will not be very close to Tynemouth.

c'et très bien fait, une superbe perspective avec cette passerelle s'enfonçant dans la mer.

a perfect POV and perspective that makes this wonderful sea protection look impressive and imposing. You had a really captivating spring day too which adds to the appeal and fascination of this shot.
Have a good week - B.

J'aime beaucoup le choix du point de vue pour cette composition. La jetée parait très longue et donne de la profondeur à l'image. J'aime les vagues d'un côté et le calme de l'autre.

Hello Beverley ,
Your tittle is so well chosen ! That is exactly the feeling we get sseing this fine capture of this long breakwater . Fine inclusion of the greenery in the FG .
A little tilt of the horizon line ?

nice diagonal composition of pier here. Yes, place is interesting for photographers. Fine light and view of lighthouse in BG. Good photo-work.
Have a nice evening.

Good evening Beverly,
The long jetty notably prevent the strong currents flow onto the harbour, we see how the waves pounding from left.
Good DOF and clarity, "tiny" people walk along the pier...
chrislo (4155) 2014-06-02 8:24
I like how you have positioned the pier superbly stretching out into the sea. The pier itself is a hideous structure, yet you have managed to portray it in a flattering manner. The jetty fulfils its role perfectly as it breaks the waves as shown on the image. Beautiful light on the whole picture. Well done.

Fantastique compo et vue quel jetée et ponton quelle immensité sans fin la vue ces vagues blanches parmi ce bleu de la mer cet ce beau ciel quel ensemble.
Bravo et amitié

the walkway stretching deep into the sea provides great dynamism and visual appealto the composition. You captured the scene from an excellent pov and with superb framing as always. The flowering bushes make a very attractive and lively foreground. Excellent composition and thanks for sharing it with us.
Have a nice evening.

Hi Bev,a magnificent capture of this lighthouse,showing us all the scenery of the coast too,another great backlight very well exposed like your last in black and white,very original and very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Whew, I survived the "skillful" driving of my friend last week to now get caught up on your pictures. :) Easy to understand why you would recommend this location to other photographers, just this section alone looks to have many possibilities. The title plays right into the composition of this shot, you nailed the idea of perspective and direction with this arrangement. Love the pastel colors in the sky, too, almost a dreamy effect. Looks to have been a nice day out, glad you took advantage of the sun. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
elenimavrandoni (14249) 2014-06-02 22:26
a small lighthouse but a nice and long walk to get to it..the pastel colors are beautiful and getting to the lighthouse is already overwhelming and romantic..
a nice moment of the day chosen!!
all the best

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Encore une image fort bien présentée avec cette avancée sur la mer.
L'ensemble est bien pensé et nous offre une vue splendide .
Très bonne journée.
Tigerlily (3107) 2014-06-03 2:50
Lovely view, nice POV, beautifully taken..
I might not be right, I sense that the horizontal line is needed to be straightened...
Hope that you are having a lovely day today.. looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. The weather forecast said it would be:"Rain, rain, ,,, and rain!:-D..

An interesting, simple composition that shows off this very practical structure. Although the waves are not very large we can see how this structure works to protect the river mouth.
Cricri (106371) 2014-06-03 4:02
Excellent POV sur cette allée avec le phare au bout de l'allée vers la ligne horizon, le remous des vagues et la verdure au premier plan, belle présentation
SnapRJW (31201) 2014-06-03 8:03
The diagonal line of the lighthouse walkway and its corresponding partner entering the frame from the right give structure to this pleasant seascape Bev. Again an area I am unfamiliar with so thanks for the tip.
fabbs99 (16167) 2014-06-03 23:50
Excellent shot of the Tynemouth Lighthouse.Nice colors and sharpness.Excellent POV.TFS.

That is a massive structure and I love the way you have made the walkway start from the extreme bottom right of the pic. Elegant view of the sea too.
Have a great day.
siudzi (33627) 2014-06-08 2:05
You selected a great POV for taking this panorama shot. The road is leading us directly to the lighthouse and creates a nice diagonal effect for the composition. Well managed light made the scene so calm and peaceful. TFS!
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-06-09 8:12
The light was really magnificent at that time and it creates here so pleasant and relaxing atmosphere of the scene.
Also the way you framed the scene appeals to me much.Green FG and breakwater leading our eyes towards the lighthouse.Excellent!
adramad (38077) 2014-06-10 14:20
This image that is sensational, with this long breakwater jutting into the sea and the lighthouse at the end of it, I like the diagonal, which breaks with the horizontal line created by the sea and sky, very nice waves breaking against rocks that protect the same, the sky also has nice clouds and color, being a nice addition to the composition.
A gorgeous image with good color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Have a good week.
Very well done. I love it.
All the best.

Very little tiltt of the horizon, it's simple to correct in PP
But nice perspective of the pier
It will be great to take this view with a rough sea
