Whitehaven Lighthouses

A seal repeatedly popped his head out of the water and kept a close watch on my photographic efforts!

Whitehaven has some notable links. John Paul Jones led a naval raid on this Georgian town in 1778 during the American War of Independence and the grandmother of George Washington lived here. Jonathan Swift and William Wordsworth have also been associated with this town.

    • Yes, I was pleased with how this all came out – it was a dull day and initially didn’t show much promise. Will be returning as I’d like to see how things work out when there’s more contrast and light. Thanks for your support, Karen 🙂
