Lighthouse
Winter sun and low tide on Bridgwater Bay at Burnham on Sea, The beach lighthouse was used in conjunction with a high on shore lighthouse to guide shipping into the River Parrett and up to the port of Bridgwater, The bay is part of the Bristol Channel which has the second highest tidal range in the world at 11m (36ft) and at low tide exposes extensive mud flats and sand bars, The island of Steep Holm is the distance.

Large if you please

Many ships have run aground on the sand bars and mud banks so my link for sight and sound,

Excellent!
Reminds me of the time I drove to Burnham from London to see some clients who had moved there. I spent a very frustrating time going from one phone box to another trying to get directions from my clients (before the age of the mobile phone). Nothing in my map made sense with what they were telling me.
The reason?
I was in Burnham-On-Crouch and they were (you've guessed it) ... here!
