Hillarys Lighthouse

Hillarys Lighthouse

This is a 8 image stitch taken at the entrance to Hillarys Boat Harbour.

I have been frustrated with the conditions as of late as has everyone else by the sounds of it. So on Thursday afternoon after having my little kip on the couch I woke up and saw some nice clouds rolling through. I thought “MMMmmMM clouds” and then quickly got my gear together and jumpd in the car. It was looking like the large bank of clouds was heading toward the Marina so I decided to head that way.

I took this shot about 5 minutes after the sun had set. The sky was actually lit up with a pink/purple cast in the easterly direction but I was knackered and figured I would stick with this frame which was shot facing north.

A figure or two walking down the path would have been nice…. and maybe a beam of light from the lighthouse. 🙂

    Thanks Mel. I am not too sure how those shots turned out. i am yet to look at them. I think the one looking up at the lighthouse might be OK. Pretty cliche` shot though.

    Cheers Dylan, Thomas and Sean. I appreciate the comments.

    Yes… Fina-F******’ly I posted something!

    Having to work during the day and then go to fricken TAFE at night licks a hairy nutsack. I find it hard to get time to shoot let alone process shots. I will try to make time though.

    Was visiting in Perth for the first time for whole of Oct, Nov 2008 – amongst numerous other places, went to Hillarys quite often and immediately fell in love with the place. Your images, also on flickr, much appreciated and admired.
