Australia is home to many historic lighthouses. Some of them are in very remote or picturesque locations and as such they make for interesting subjects for landscape photography. There is also a certain charm to them. Maybe it's the idea of living in one, all alone against the raw elements of nature. A single heroic figure, shining light in the darkness.
As photographic subjects they can be challenging. Often the off-shore wind can be ferocious. Sea spray and cover your lens, the rocks can be slippery and the incoming tide a danger. Like most things in life, the secret is pouring more time into it.
Presented here are the Australian lighthouse photographs I've created over the years. Some of them I've returned to dozens of times, and will hopefully continue to do so for years to come.
