All That Glitters

The lighthouse on legs - Burnham On Sea.

I've been wanting to shoot this spot for a while, but never have the time, the weather wasn't playing ball, or the tides were wrong.
This time I took a chance and drove down there one evening after work, just on the off chance that I may get some results.
Lady Luck was on my side, and I was rewarded with a beautiful sunset that night.

About the Lighthouse:

After the Pillar Lighthouse building was completed it was found that too low a vantage point had been selected to take into account the massive rise and fall of the tides, so a lighthouse on legs was built in 1832 to complement the tower.
