Hook Lighthouse is a unique example of an almost intact medieval lighthouse. It dates from the early 13th century and was a major feat at the time of its construction.

This image was possible by merging two images in order to capture the rays of light from the lighthouse. The sky and beams were captured with a higher shutter speed to freeze the beams. I increased the ISO to 1000 and then dodged the rays of light further in PS. The lighthouse and water was captured at ISO 50 and a slow shutter speed for the motion of the water.
