Photographer's Note

St John’s Point Lighthouse, Co Down

In 1908 the light was improved by the installation of the present bi-form lens. The gas jet burners were replaced with incandescent paraffin burners. In September 1954 the colour of the tower was changed from white with black bands to black with two yellow bands.

This image was possible by merging two images in order to capture the rays of light from the lighthouse. The sky and beams were captured at ISO 1000 with a higher shutter speed to freeze the beams. The lighthouse and water was captured at ISO 100 with a slower Shutter speed.
