Photography Tips

There are a number of places to capture the Lighthouse one close to the Summit car park as you start down the path. Once you are on the path you start descending and then you need good footwear and long pants as the low blackberry bushes are quite spiky. The closer you get to the edge of the cliff the more of the rocks and surf at the bottom of the cliff you can capture. A good head torch to get there before dawn and be careful need the edge of the cliff.
