Mumbles Lighthouse

Round the corner from the pier we revisit Mumbles Lighthouse. My eye was caught by these Evening Primrose flowers in the foreground.

In the distance the lighthouse looks tiny... but its light guides the ships ;)

Another fine example of how to successfully fill the foreground in a landscape shot.

Once again we fall in love with a landscape more! With high mobility. A powerful and foreground plant with small yellow flowers that give color to the picture. A group of rock formations with excellent textures. A space dedicated to the sea, always wonderful, and finally the profile of the mountains and a lighthouse. Far but that attracts our attention. For that I love the headlights even without light? Someone will see it in the sea at night and light the road will lead you on insurance! Excellent image friend! Best regards, Adela!

Wonderful composition. The link between the flowers in the foreground and the light house in the distance is great. It pulls all the shore and water together. Fantastic details in those rocks!

I like the foreground flowers which are well focused. The shot looks good right on out to the light house.

I love how the greens and yellows of the flowers stand out against the more rugged and deeper colors in the rest of the shot

I like that expanse of rock leading to the sea, as already mentioned, that little splash of colour works wonders.

Beautiful and barren - Terrific image - I love the little yellow and green life in the foreground among the rock.
