Your photo documents a sky of absolutely purity which makes easy to us imagining the salty smell of the wind.
The lighthouse, shining and captured with excellent exposure, is wisely placed on the left of the scene to not overwhelm the landscape but it remains, nevertheless its main centre of attention.
I deeply like this photo, Martin!
