I guess you had that place checked out before hand and knew when the sun was going to hit just right? Or was it dumb luck? Great shot!

A little of both actually. When we got there, I took the same shot but the sun was too high in the sky and just gave me either a silhouette of the lighthouse (which actually didn't look too bad) or an overexposed sky. So I decided to climb the lighthouse while the sun went down a bit. We climbed up and enjoyed the view from up there for a while, then came back down and I took this shot. :biggrin:

Thanks for the compliments, everyone!

Neat shot. That was nice how you postioned the sun behind the lighthouse and got the light coming around it's sides.

Very, very nice. Great composition and also a very well balanced exposure - retaining detail in the light and dark parts of the image. Well done.
