The Port Fairy Lighthouse (circa 1859) resides on nearby Griffiths Island off the Moyne River. I’ve forgotten how many times I’ve attempted this shot, only to come away disappointed. Persistence finally paid off.
Wandering around in the wee small hours before dawn, my torch just barely lighting the ground before me, I set my tripod in the gloom and proceeded wait, listening to the sounds of the waves swirling among the rocks, and the many thousands of mutton birds awakening.
After a while I was rewarded with the scene depicted and left on a high, going back to Port Fairy just as the little town got out of bed and the port began to come alive.
