Your tower captures are always so inspiring Ellen, love the way this juts out towards the water. The fog enhances the mood.

Looks like you got everything on this trip, Ellen - gorgeous sunset, sunrise and early morning fog! Love your perspective on this with all the foreground detail, the red of the lighthouse, and then the way your eye travels through to the glorious sun peaking out of the misty fog. So well-composed. Beautiful work, my friend!

Great composition. I love the glow in the lighthouse from the sun drawing the eye back and forth from the foreground to the horizon and back again. Ann
