Burnham Lighthouse

The story behind the image

This is an early morning photograph of the wooden lighthouse at Burnham on Sea.

We used to live in Burnham and so we know this lighthouse pretty well. Strangely, for all the years that we lived in the town, I never went out and took a photograph of this lighthouse. I suppose the area that you live in becomes unremarkable and we can overlook the beauty on our doorstep.

This lighthouse is still in use guiding vessels towards Bridgewater.

The sun is behind me, just poking over the sand dunes and warming the top of the lighthouse structure. I was joined by a number of people out walking dogs, or just for an early morning stroll.

To improve the composition I placed the lighthouse within a reflection and had the water leading towards the lighthouse too!

I hope you like the image.
