Located in the town of Portland, this is a beautiful lighthouse situated on an amazing rocky point. The city of Portland is the oldest European settlement in what is now the state of Victoria, Australia.

I shot this photo during a trip along the famous great ocean road. What made this an amazing trip was that I did it with two photography crazed friends, hence the whole trip was planned around taking photos.

This particular morning we were dead tired from shooting stars the night before but dragged ourselves out of bed and were rewarded with this amazing sunrise.

    Amazing colours! The long exposure really adds a dramatic feel to the image too. Great work!

  • Thanks Geoff, there was a lot of thick low lying cloud but it broke up just enough for an amazing sunrise :)
