Hercules’ Tower (Torre de Hecules) is the oldest Roman lighthouse that is still in use today.
Located in the city of A Coruna in Spain’s Galicia region, the lighthouse was built in the 2nd century (CE).
This image was created in the morning of a cloudless summer’s day. Although many photographers prefer some cloud to provide contrast in the sky, I actually like a clear blue sky, at least sometimes.
In these conditions a polarising filter is an important part of the toolkit.
Image was processed using Lightroom CC and Photoshop, and there was some distortion correction and a small amount of object (people) removal applied.
