High tide at Burnham

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 11 September 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Out with the camera on the beach at high tide last night and took this one of the lighthouse.

Thanks everyone for their comments and concern, it's really appreciated. I haven't been around much recently because of some personal problems, but it's nice to know people are thinking of me and miss my pics. I promise I will be back to posting regularly and visiting everyone's blogs, although possibly not till the end of the month.


I try to post an image every day and do my best to comment on others, although sometimes have difficulty posting comments on peoples blogs at the weekend because of spending time with my family. Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback

Absolutely beautiful, Doug!! Wonderfully-exposed here, giving the water a lucious and soft feel, along with the colors all around. The Lighthouse really becomes a great subject! Really special piece here, sir :-) Cheers to you and Sara and the family:-)
