I climbed the circular stairs (see previous post) of the Old Light at Lundy, the light has long since gone and two deck chairs have taken its place.



  • waiter! please 2 beers here please! :D

  • Very relaxing and nicely composed. I wish you aligned the horizontal window mullion with the horizon line.
    Hope you spent a couple of hours on thiese chairs.

  • What a cool prize for the performance climbing up so many stairs.

  • Wow! Awesome perspective, lovely composition and very nice B&W conversion! cudo’s cudo’s.

  • Very nice render and angle for this shot ! great capture !

  • I also love the POV here. I’m not bothered by the horizon being above the mullion, in fact, I think it helps the viewer to better understand that it’s ocean out there and appreciate the broader expanse of the horizon line. This is a wonderful image! Although the chairs look inviting, I’ll bet it gets hot as hell in there at times.

  • terrific shot!!
