The Lighthouse..



The last time you saw the lighthouse at Hillarys Boat Harbour it looked like this. Now without wrapping and scaffolding it is back to its pristine white and yellow, looking splendid under the blue sky.. loved that the yacht sailed quietly into the shot just as I clicked! Described as a small lighthouse in a big marina it stands at 24m high with a viewing platform, seen below, at 5m.. that's plenty high enough for moi to catch the view. I hope the lighthouse remains tag free for many years to come. Into the city later today to take some street shots, it's been a while :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  4. I'm glad your fear of flying did not prevent you climbing aboard the lighthouse - because it looks to me like something that might blast off into space at any moment! :)

  10. Impressive! And that first shot is the work of a professional! Superb composition and colors. I love everything about it. I'm with you on 5m being far enough off the ground!

  12. It does remind me of a rocket ready for blastoff. Perfect sky for the lighthouse, not one cloud in sight, I'm impressed. The view was well worth the climb up the stairs. Nice perspective on the stairs going down. Well done, Grace!

  20. I think I would not brave up like you, Grace - though.... you cannot see through the stairs. I can´t remember if you could before, guess not.
    Yes, let´s hope people respect the renovation!
