A Month of Photo Effects
It is not often you can take an eye-level view of a lighthouse. After all, they are supposed to rise well above the surrounding terrain. At Fort Story, however, the new lighthouse stands about 100 yards from the old lighthouse, which is open to the public—hence the eye-to-eye level photograph.
Okay, so this is not really a “special effect.” So here is what I did.
Looking down from the floor at the top of the old tower, I was intrigued by the patterns formed by the spriral staircase. But it needed a little something to make it more dramatic, so I added a gold chrome effect. Now can you find other buildings at Fort Story in this image?
Trivia: The first public dollars spent by the new United States government funded the original Fort Story lighthouse. Here is more information on the Fort Story Lighthouses.
