I like the watercolour effect of the image below, although the watercolour filter was not used.

La Corbiere Lighthouse, Jersey

 

La Corbiere lighthouse is situated off the south west coast of Jersey  –  an area hazardous to ships because of its rocks and treacherous currents.  The lighthouse is linked to the main island by a causeway that is covered at high tide.  A siren is sounded to warn visitors of the rising tide.  The light from the lighthouse is visible for 18 miles.  It was switched off by the occupying forces during World War II and was used only for the convenience of their own convoys.

The Lighthouse

The lighthouse pictured is La Corbière, situated at the south west tip of the Isle of Jersey.  The name means ‘a place where crows gather’, but the crows have long since been displaced by seagulls.
