Painted Pink

Sunset surrounds the late 19th-century Rattray Head lighthouse in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Your Shot member Grant Glendinning captured the dusk’s changing light with a long exposure and a neutral density and polarizing filter attached to a wide-angle lens.

Glendinning’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
