The Castle Point Light by cullodenmist

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I took this back in 2004 when I was having one of my early love affairs with NZ.
The Castle Point Lighthouse is a lighthouse near the village of Castlepoint on the South East coast in the Wellington Region of New Zealand’s North Island.
It is owned and operated by Maritime New Zealand..
The light was built in 1913 and was originally fueled by oil.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.
