I secretly hope this doesn't end up in my top 5. I don't want three lighthouses on my profile page... Is a ribbon with a 7.2 too much to ask?? :)

This was my best choice from the month. I especially liked the way the windows and the lighthouse are illuminated. I blocked the the lens during the long exposure each time the light flashed around, with the goal of keeping the lighthouse beacon from blowing out. Worked reasonably well I think.

Knowing lighthouses usually score well here at DPC, I'll predict around a 6.5.

I like the light lavendar hue to the sky/clouds. The waves look nice and soft too with the longer exposure. -BB
