Those are three fine photos Conor. That first one is one big chunk of rock, great composition and foreground. The second photo, I don't think that's a lighthouse, what is it?

Agree lol..what a great venue for lunch- I wouldn't want to back to work. I love sea photos. I went to a headland in Cornwall last year-Bude,that was it and there was the same lighthouse type structurer there. It's stone built and has slot opening round it. Almost like an observation tower. I've just googled it and found it. It's  identical,it's a Cost Guard shelter.  Thee's a few photos of it here. http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&biw=1336&bih=997&gbv=2&tbs=isch:1&btnG=Search&aq=f&aqi=&oq=&gs_rfai=&q=compass%20point%20cornwall

This one gives an explanation too. http://www.cornwallinfocus.co.uk/walking/bude.php

A great way to spend lunch Conor!, hope you had time to eat, I could imagine a sandwich in mouth while shooting through the camera at the same time lol. Seriously though, classy shots, like the b&w image of Mussenden Temple with the raging sea spray, looks very stormy there, I would imagine it must have been bitterly cold!

My favourite is the wind surfer! - a good shot for BBC Newsline  Smiley

Thanks very much for your comments guys, it was a great way to spend lunch shooting! Its a great spot down there and very peaceful, oh yea apart from the 30mph winds and sub zero wind chill! Worst thing was I nearly got bogged in the company van and me on lunch break though the good old mats helped me out  Grin

John, thanks for the links to the Coast Guard Shelter, looks like some great views from up there.

Conor, that stone mountain would look nice wide angle with some big cloud structure towering over it! That second photo of the mountain looks like the trees were cut at one time and reforested, they're all planted in nice straight rows.
