This magnificent lighthouse is worthy of a second post.
Nikon D700 1/500 second F/9.0 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)
A ghostly image, this splendid foreground yellow flowers. Good day.

And in the thick mist appears a delightful lighthouse at the foot of a field full of flowers! A splendid composition to a friend! An aura of mystery surrounds this picture! Un abrazo y muchos besos amigo Jack!

It sure is and what a fantastic shot, love the transition from well light and clear colorful flowers transition to the fog and lighthouse

Beautiful misty atmosphere. The lighthouse is happy being surrounded by flowers.

Côté mystérieux .. magnifique !

That is amazing!! I love the misty pale image of the lighthouse with the incredible foreground of the flowers. Stunning!

Nicely captured and great scene.

So interesting to see so much clarity and light on the foreground flowers, and so fogged out light on the lighthouse. Well done.
10 Jul 2010 2:35pm
Another ethereal shot, Jack ... with such a lovely foreground.
10 Jul 2010 2:47pm
A beautiful, atmospheric looking shot. The fog enhances the lighthouse so much. It seems to pick up the yellows of the foreground. Fine image.

Excellent composition in this outstanding image. The field is a great draw for the eye but does not overwhelm the wonderful moody feel of the lighthouse and building in front of it. Superb

We always excel to capture everything but this one, you made it a point to make the viewer feel the mood. Very nice!

@Formerly known as MontereyJohn: Thanks. It's a few miles north of Newport, OR. Hope that you are getting settled.
Great selective focus :)

@MARIANA: Thank you. Actually the look is all created by the fog; it moved in and out like pea soup.
Makes the lighthouse look almost ghostly.....Cool shot !!!

@Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, USA: Thanks. For some reason, I dearly love these two shots in the fog.
Jack this is a great capture - what a challenge regrding exposure - good heavens -And the Mustard (?) plants are so vibrant - Bravo sir!
10 Jul 2010 10:30pm
Yes it is especially with the ghostly mist and yellow flowers. Nice shooting, Jack.
10 Jul 2010 11:00pm
Wow Jack -what a splendid shot. The tower of the lighthouse emerges from the mist in a ghostly manner.
10 Jul 2010 11:36pm
Wow....talk about spectacular light. Beautiful Jack, the white above the mustard!!!

@Laurie: Thanks, Laurie. Lighthouses seem to have a universal appeal.
This is stunning! I just got back from Chicago, and I actually missed our West Coast fog!!!
