Rocket Ship ( Day18 )


This one I did feel inspired to shoot :-)


I have seen this in images lots of times as a sunset which always looks fantastic so I decided to shoot it at day break, I wanted early sun, instead I had a very cold wind and clouds at 7am.


This called The Oratory and is on the downs above Blackgang and is a medieval lighthouse.


The 'lighthouse' was built in c1312 and it's glazed lantern was of little use shining through small windows especially during fog, although high enough it is still a fair distance from the coastal edge. The Oratory was a chantry chapel adjoined but has not survived.

Mesmerizing !

I have no other words! I could gaze upon this image all day . . . as I can only dream of someday visiting your corner of the globe. . .

I would love to have a Gallery Image of this in my home.


OK,,, moment of seriousness is over. Back to my regularly scheduled chaos.

This is lovely! Do you have to travel far to get all these wonderful views?

The Island is approximatly 26miles by 15 so it is small.
