A sweet lighthouse, wonderful colors. I would love to see that one up close.
I hope you took a walk out there after lunch. :-)

God will sing in this magic sky ! Super sensation, and what a sunny day through the clouds to get this light and those fairy-tale-like colors (HDR in the sky or just contrasts ?)

17 May 2010 12:03pm

@k@: No HDR; mild increase in Contrast and Structure (using Nik's Viveza 2).
