"Beacon of Hope" 2 by Phil Thomson IPA


Available to buy on…

This image is a team effort in collaboration with the very talented Rosalie Dale

The lighthouse at Point Lonsdale stands guard over the very narrow shipping passage of water through the Heads to Port Phillip Bay and also as beacon of hope and a welcome sight to many a weary sailor, as they know when this is seen, it is only a few more hours until they can dock in the Ports of Melbourne and Geelong.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.
