Occasionally I switch my camera to selective colour mode and here at the Hurst Point Lighthouse on a windy day, the sky was particularly co-operative with a variety of blue light and shade, though I did have to adjust the exposure a little as the intermittent overcastness always seems to happen just as I click the shutter (hence the grainyness).
Did you know that Pharology is the study of lighthouses? [from the Greek for light and the famous lighthouse of Alexandria] I just discovered this but am evidently in the mode as had just posted a photo essay on Orford Ness lighthouse when the lens artists photo challenge summoned up some Blue – and besides Monday in the blogosphere often has the blues.

So love lighthouses—this is a new one on me! And it’s a beauty!
are we pharophils I wonder? Thank you Tina – this one still in use though all are automated now
I think we are Laura!
What a ‘crisp’ lighthouse against lavender blues.
hmm – lovely adjective – have you been cooling off with chilled white winet?! It’s G&Ts this summer in the city
Have recently found myself inordinately fond of G & Ts. G serves them up, and T necks them 🙂
That sky is amazing! I’ve seen red lighthouses, but this white one is striking.
Thanks Patti – your comment made me investigate colour of lighthouses
Wow, Laura! Thanks for educating me about them!
I’m afraid I did get a little distracted by the comments about G&Ts 😀 But now I come to think about it I do have quite a few photos of lighthouses. Now there’s a thought for a post. I even have one of this lighthouse!
A merry interlude on the G&Ts….look forward to seeing you lighthouses Jude – not least this one!
I have made a note 🙂
Well the subject of this blue prevents ship crews from getting the blues…
Or going down in the deep blue
Calming! 🙂 🙂
thank you Jo – am suitably calmed
A beauty – and against that lovely sky – amazing.
thank you Leya – I do not often use the colour picker on my camera but skies make a good subject for this I think
And – thank you for giving me a new word: Pharology!
we learn so much just blogging!
A good reason to keep going!
Thank you Amy – love your new avatar
Love yours too, Laura 💖
