A few weeks ago, I went out to Whiteford Sands with Emma Jones. We were hoping for a spectacular sunset but were let down. On the walk out, we spotted some periwinkles that had been exposed by a low tide and had been crawling along the sand – see Emma’s blog post for photos. Whilst she was photographing the periwinkles, I spotted a small patch of barnacles.
Whiteford Lighthouse is one of only two cast iron lighthouses in the world still washed by sea water and is now a scheduled ancient monument. We walked closer to the lighthouse, but the tide had come in a little so we couldn’t go all the way. There were plenty more periwinkles which made a perfect subject for my 24mm ts-e so I set the tripod down low and pushed it into the sand to stop it sinking whilst taking photos – the ground was a little less than solid!
As the sun set, I took another photo to include both the sun and the lighthouse.
Feeling disappointed with the light, but having enjoyed the fresh air, we started the brisk 2 mile walk back to the car. I will be going back…
