Photo information

Low Lighthouse is sometimes referred to the ‘lighthouse on legs’, and was purposefully built to stand very tall above the beach in Burnham-on-Sea. It was constructed in 1832. The structure was built to supplement a local pillar-shaped lighthouse which was thought to be too short to be seen by all vessels using the channel.

I was lucky enough to visit the lighthouse during a golden sunset. Many dog walker and runners were using the beach for exercise at the time, and I managed to capture one of them in this shot.
