St. John’s Point Lighthouse in County Down is located on the northern tip of Dundrum Bay not far from Killough. The Lighthouse has been in operation since 1844 and has very distinct yellow and black colour scheme. The lighthouse was fully automated in 1981 and now only requires a part-time attendant to look after the station.

This is a very nice picture of lighthouse, with a great reflection on the water, a perfect depth of field and sharpness!
The light is beautiful too.

Great capture, taken at a great angle to take in the reflection, very sharp colours and detail.

Very striking shot and excellent composition. It looks cold, but the orange stripes add a hint of warmth. I like the faint pink in the sky, the strong foreground interest so sharply rendered, and the pleasing balance of the picture. Very nicely done indeed.

Very nice POV on this beautiful lighthouse. I remember I've been there, but it was in the afternoon so I could not have such a light. Very well done !
