Artist's Description

Fingal Lighthouse was erected in 1872 of stone which was painted white, at one of the most easterly points of Australia where there was plenty of deep water offshore. The tower had a fixed white light of 1,000 candelas. The lighthouse keeper was withdrawn in 1920 when the kerosene wick burner was converted to automatic acetylene operation with an output of 1,500 candelas.
Info source

Today the lighthouse is still in operation with the lamp-house guiding ships at night. This image is the result of a pre-dawn excursion to this magic place, and the ship was dredged from my own archives too. Couldn’t find my DSLR in my 4.00am haste so went along with the wee Nikon to see how it would fare anyway. No complaints…except that I left the picnic brekky back by the door.
