Point Tacking Lighthouse at the Northern end of Lighthouse beach at Port Macquarie.Tacking Point Lighthouse is Australia’s third oldest lighthouse. It was built on a rocky headland about 8 kilometres south of Port Macquarie in 1879 by Shepard and Mortley, to a design by the New South Wales government’s architect of the time, James Barnet. It is operated by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and is classified by the National Trust of Australia (NSW This is a very accessible whale watching point and a very photographed lighthouse.
I came across this in an article in a UK photo.
Good idea for Winter photography I thought.
It involves taking photos in the dead of night
in pitch black conditions and using a hand held
flashlight to paint a building or monument
with coloured light. The colours are created
by placing coloured gels or in my case
cellophane over the flash. F6 10mm 3.5 minute exposure. Canon 350 D with a Sigma 10-20mm lens.
The clouds were moving across a moonlit sky.
