[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Reached between the tides via a short causeway, St Mary’s Lighthouse has all the fascination of a miniature, part-time island. The Lighthouse, completed in 1898, on a hazardous coast for shipping, remained operational until 1984 when it was superseded by modern navigational techniques.

North Tyneside Council now operates the Lighthouse as a visitor centre, through the Libraries and Museums service.

Facilities include a popular shop and an exhibition/meeting room, which is available for hire.

Visitors can climb the 137 steps to the top of the Lighthouse, which provides spectacular views of the North East coast. The surrounding Nature Reserve contains an area of rock pools, cliff top grassland, a beach and a wetland habitat.

Good composition, good choice of B&W. Picture very sharp.
Well done, tfs.

Nice shot and view, good choice of B&W tones.
But, I would place the lighthouse on left of right, keeping some space on one side, hence making the lighthouse off-center (that's an important aspect in landscape -and not only- photography).

I would try to use a polarizer to reduce the overexposure on the left side of the lighthouse.

Nice shot.
