Robe Obelisk

By Rogerex
Another photo of this famous icon on our state's south coast. As I said in a previous posting a few years ago, this structure was for storing safety equipment to be used if boats hit the rocks. Due to wave erosion, access to the obelisk is now not allowed as it is at risk of falling into the sea. Just after taking this picture the rain came, and the rest of the day was a washout for taking photos.

A rather unusually shaped lighthouse, however you have made it you focal point in this rather splendid image, lovely point of, view which leads the eyes into the image very well.

Stunning photo of this unique structure. The light did you a big favor here, and perfect timing for the wave.
