This week was busy, I got more photographs than usual 🙂 I have quite a number that I would love to use as the photo for The 2010 Deck this week, but I have to choose one, so after some thought I chose one that I am unlikely to replicate anytime soon, it is a wide-angle shot from a low perspective:
This is the “Lamp Room” at the top of the Lighthouse in Kingston, Georgetown, Guyana. It was taken from the stairwell at the level with the floor.

Good choice, an exotic location that few are likely to visit. Why didn’t you tell more of the story of how you came to be there?
i should have 🙂
great shot, Michael! Very unusual perspective makes this so dramatic, I think.
Thanks, the drama adds to it, because of the confined space this happened to be a great spot to get more 🙂
Great shot. Just last week I thought of that lighthouse. Special permission needed to visit right?
Thanks Fidal, we tagged along with some people who smiled their way in 🙂
Nice use of the low and wide perspective.
Thanks. that wide angle lens sure came in handy in this tight spot 🙂
This is great Michael, I love the way the vertical plane is centralised and the horizontal (roof) is not. Gives it the perfect claustrophobia. Really nice metering and d-o-f too, good choices.
Not to mention the BRAVERY and ABNORMALLY WIDE SMILES required to achieve your shot in the first place … 🙂 such a shame some of your friends missed out on this great opportunity. Do you think it was the courage or the quality of smile that was lacking?!?!
Yes, thanks for smiling for us 🙂 it is a shame that not everyone made it to the top 🙂 I don’t consider myself very brave, but pride did play a part -) hopefully, there’ll be other times when everyone can rave it 🙂
I like the low POV besides the geometric shapes in this shot.
Thanks Sasi, the low view did give it a nive perspective.
Nice shot, I like lighthouses!
Thanks Kerstin, as far as I know, we only have one in Guyana, which is strange for such a long coastline 🙂
This was my first time going up there (to my memory)
