    Flamborough Lighthouse, Flamborough Head, Yorkshire, England

    Going for a slightly different style and break from the 'norm' today. This was taken last year and just not got round to editing it. I really like taking images of Flamborough head as it is one my local lighthouses when I visit back up North.

    On this night was lucky enough to get some nice pastel colours in the sky which add to the atmosphere of the image.

    This place is always worth a visit if you get chance but take a steady tripod as it can get very windy up there. :-)

    Flamborough Head is a promontory of 8 miles (13 km) on the Yorkshire coast of England, between the Filey and Bridlington bays of the North Sea. It is a chalk headland, and the resistance it offers to coastal erosion may be contrasted with the low coast of Holderness to the south. There are larger numbers and a wider range of cave habitats at Flamborough than at any other chalk site in Britain, the largest of which are known to extend for more than 50 m from their entrance on the coast. Flamborough Head was featured on the television programme Seven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of Yorkshire and briefly in the first series of Coast.

    The Flamborough Head Lighthouse has 4 white flashes every 15 seconds. Trinity House operates tours of the lighthouse seasonally.

      Great - like the cross over between the natural light and the window lights.
