This little lighthouse at Lake Hefner is not something you'd expect in the middle of the heartland.  It is a fully functional lighthouse and is a loose replica of the Brandt Point Lighthouse in Massachusetts.

Beautiful David. Morning or evening? I like the leading line of the jetty. Would be cool to come back again, before or after a storm, with clouds. That would tell a different "story".
Great detail too. Did you focus on the door of the lighthouse (about one-third into the frame)? Thanks!

This was at dawn, the sun was just starting to peak over the horizon behind me.  I did focus on the door frame of the light house.

Thats an awesome shot, great subtle colors in the sky, the lone cloud adds a bit for me, the lighthouse is fantastic, very well done!  Small thing...looks like the horizon tilts downward to the right.

Very pleasant shot to look at. I agree with Mark about the leading line of the jetty - takes the eye right to the lighthouse. Are you going to print it? Might look good on a wall.

Nice photo.  I played 'round with it by lifting the yellows, orange and purples.  I upped the vibrance a tad and stuck a grad filter on the sky and dropped the exposure on it to slightly darken it and to boost the clouds.

Looks ok but maybe not your vision. ;)

I checked lightroom and it appears level, it might just be the shape of the far shoreline.  I had to check about 3 times to make sure.

I might, there are a few pics I've been wanting to print and this might be one of them.

I'd like to see it.  Might be something I'd consider doing.

Lighthouses make for a great subject.  Nice work!

Had to resize it < 2MB.

Its such a nice picture that playing with it was a pleasure, even if the results are a bit, eh, OTT ?
