Issue date: Monday September 22, 2014. Press Association photographer Owen Humphreys, has been photographing the changing weather patterns over St Mary's, near to his home, for the last 18 months, capturing the different 'moods', from sunrises to sunsets, storms and even auroras. The Lighthouse, completed in 1898 on a hazardous coast for shipping, remained operational until 1984 when it was superseded by modern navigational techniques. Since then the Lighthouse and former keepers' cottages have been operated as a visitor centre by North Tyneside Council. The surrounding Nature Reserve contains an area of rockpools, clifftop grassland, a beach and newly created wetland habitats and attracts thousands of visitors each year.
