Hold the Stars

NIKON Z 7 + 14.0 mm f/2.4 @ 14 mm, 15 sec at f/2.4, ISO 3200

Having completed our light painting on the western side of the lighthouse buildings it was time to move to the eastern (seaward) side which Gerry was keen to see and photograph

As you can see, by now the milky way core had moved into a pretty ideal location for this prep shot for some light painting

The lighthouse tower and most of the building is actually in ruins

The Cape St George Lighthouse was doomed from its very inception. A result of official bungling and lack of supervision, its light lasted for less than 40 years, after which it was unceremoniously destroyed

Constructed in 1860, it was active until 1889. The tower was destroyed (target practice by the Royal Australian Navy) between 1917–1922 to avoid confusion in daylight

It was replaced in 1899 by a new lighthouse at Point Perpendicular, a much more suitable location for a lighthouse on this part of the coast
