St.John's lighthouse is situated near Killough in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is one of 70 lighthouses operated by the Commissioners of Irish Lights around the coast of Ireland. A favourite among photographers I believe it is best photographed from the seaward side at low tide giving in my opinion a better composition. Movement over the rocks can be extremely tricky as they can still be wet and very slippery so therefore care must be exercised.

I managed to find this composition near a small walled jetty. The remaining sea water just enough to show a reflection. The wall itself gave me a leading line towards the lighthouse.

I used a Canon 5D mk2 together with a 24-70 f2.8L lens to record this image. No filters were used.
