Summer Lights - Ilfracombe
August 2021 - Inspired by Summer Lights - Woolacombe
This picture was taken on the Sunday evening of a very busy August Bank Holiday weekend. It was taken from a high point on Baggy Point over 2.5 miles away! There’s one obvious edit made to complete this image if you know the history of the village. Can you work it out?
This picture shows the “Summer Lights” of Ilfracombe and was taken during the busy holiday period when most lights of the town would be active. A particular feature is the lights of Fore Street right in the centre winding down the street, plus the Oldenburg and many other boats in and around the harbour.
It also shows the lights of the coast path around Capstone to the right, the Torrs and then Lundy in the far distance, look closely to see its lighthouse flashing to the right!
This image is immensely sharp and show off the amazing detail of this beautiful place at dusk. It is mounted behind glass and surrounded by a black coloured textured wood frame.
The print itself is 760x300mm and is now only offered as a Whitewall produced print on photometallic paper enabling the highlights to really stand out and glow. It has to be seem to be believed! The print is professionally dry-mounted, then finally mounted in a black or grey wood frame behind glass.
