Lighting Up the Night

The lighthouse that overlooks Shoreham harbour flashes for one second six times every minute and is visible out at sea for more than ten miles. 
More importantly though, according to its review on Google, it scores an impressive 4.6 out of a possible 5 stars. 

Ummm … I’m not entirely sure what the metric is upon which 74 people have voted and reviewed this lighthouse!! Are they fishermen who particularly enjoy the pulse of the lamp’s broadcast? Or landlubbers who are partial to the stonework of this gorgeous C19 building?

Anyway back to this picture. There is no trick photography going on here; I have fiddled with the contrast and saturation levels in Adobe Lightroom, but aside from that everything you see is what the camera picked up. No airbrushing or Photoshopping. The stars are genuinely that bright behind and even the lens flares are a natural result of the street lighting in this area. -/-
