Red white & blue

A early start ( 6am) enabled flickr pal Rob ( insomniac2008) and I to reach this viewpoint.

 

Usually this view is only accessible on a 7metre or greater falling tide, today the tide and weather was in our favour. I've been wanting to get 'out' to this place for ages. It is an awe inspiring location.

As the tide was so low I was able to photograph the lighthouse from the sea side to include some of it reflected in the rockpools.

 

The dramatic chalk cliff behind, rises to 530ft, making it the highest chalk cliff in Britain, it dwarfs the structure which is at least ten storey's high. Using a Sigma 10-20mm @ 10mm came into its own in this shot, all the lighthouse and most of the reflection is included, pays to carry all your stuff cos you never know when you might need it..lol!
