Cape Byron Lighthouse

By annettep38  
I have learned a lot about parking meters since yesterday. Was splitting sides about your reaction and I was impresses with Pamela's eagle eyes, Yes I took the horse ring only 30kms from where the other one was taken
So thanks to you all, especially to Paul for the UA.

One from the archives, I have to dig after 3 weeks of downpour.
Cape Byron Lighhouse is New South Wales' nothernmost Lighthouse and one of Australia's finest.

There's nothing like a white lighthouse against a saturated blue sky I think. Lovely. Don

The whites and blues here I more often associate with the eastern Med., Annette: what a pristine lighthouse, standing out so crisply against the blue of the sky.
Excellent capture and presentation.

Well, there are advantages to being forced into the archives -- you end up finding a gem like this.
I like the way you laid out this shot -- and kudos to not overexposing that bright white facade.

Looks as if they started out building a fortress, then changed their minds and put a light tower on top. Sturdy enough to keep unwanted marauding riff-raff out anyway!
Perfectly set-off against that rich blue sky, Annette.
