Beachy Head Lighthouse

Last weekend we went on another family outing to a National Trust spot. We’re making the most of it, having only recently joined the organisation.

Beachy Head Lighthouse on a glorious, sunny day.

Helen wanted to see the Seven Sisters, dramatic chalk cliffs on the South Coast. After getting stuck in horrendous traffic outside Brighton, we eventually arrived.

En-route se stopped off at Beachy Head. It was a glorious sunny day and it looked absolutely stunning. The picture here is of Beachy Head lighthouse at the bottom of the cliffs.

The landscape in that area is absolutely amazing. I think I could have taken photographs all day. Alas, the kids wanted to fly their kite and so I had to put the camera down and help them with this instead. This was no bad thing to be honest with you, kite flying is rather good fun.

    I love lighthouses, there’s just something about them. I’m not sure I would have made a very good lighthouse keeper – although there would have been plenty of opportunities to take photos, I suppose. Glad you had fun flying the kite too.

      I think i’d find being a lighthouse keeper a bit lonely. But the photographic opportunities must be amazing.

      It did look inviting, but not from that height!

    That is a beautiful photo. We don’t get to the sea as much as I’d like to. The views are always fabulous.

      I’d never been here before but the view really is superb. I imagine it to be very different on a stormy day.

    The water looks amazing with all those different shades of blue. I’d love to see from that lighthouse. Fab picture!

    This is a beautiful photo John, I love the composition and how the lighthouse is the centrepiece framed by the cliff.

      Thakns Victoria. That’s exactly how I wanted the pic; the lighthouse framed by the cliff.

    I’m a little bit in love with this photo, It’s beautiful and calm, though the story will be different on a stormy night I guess. Lovely #MySundayPhoto

      Delighted to hear you’re in love with the pic! Yes, I imagine the scenery to be very different in bad weather.

    Hi John, I love everything about this photo; the colours of the sea, the fallen rocks at the base of the cliff and the lighthouse centered proudly in the middle.

      I don’t think it’s that small, just the perspective among the rocks. Great view though isn’t it?

      It is a stunning location, at least in the sunshine.

    Amazing angle & perspective. I would want to get photos all day too if the view is as pretty as this! #mysundayphoto

      I think I could have spent all day there as well. In fact one guy was flying a drone overhead. He must have got some awesome pictures.

    A good trip despite the traffic then 🙂 Great photo…can’t remember the last time I flew a kite though!

      Eurgh, the traffic almost ruined the day but the views at the end were worth it! Kite flying, by the way, is awesome!

    Fabulous photo, what a great vantage point. The water looks beautiful too, so many shades of blue x

      Thanks Sara. i think I was very fortunate with the weather on that day. The sun lit the sea up well.

      Thanks Emily, very kind of you. It is a very beautiful spot in the sunshine. i wonder how it would look in a storm? Equally dramatic but for very different reasons I think.

  19. November 12, 2018 / 2:47 pm

    SO beautiful! Looks like the perfect day trip. I’ve been there, but it was many years ago, and I can barely remember it. However, those white cliffs are still vivid in my mind.
