Taken on the way back to port from a trip of Dolphin Spotting in Southern Spain, I was intrigued by the rare shape of this tower, which looks to me like a guard tower for the port of Duquesa. This photo reminds me of the tranquility felt on holiday, and feels like a reality different from the ‘normal’ everyday life.
The lighthouse is situated on the last outcrop of sandstone and is 278 feet above sea level. Erected in 1884 by Mr D Scott. First operated on 1st December 1884. The cost of building the lighthouse was 5571 pounds. To accommodate the lighthouse keepers two small cottages and tool sheds were built nearby. The lighthouse switched to automation on 17th November, 1947 and on that day the harbour was closed to ships. It is now under the Historic Places Trust.
The Snæfellsnes Peninsula really is Iceland in a nutshell; here some of the most incredible scenes in the whole country can be found. We found this lighthouse on a stormy day, and the drone battled the wind to get up high enough and get the shot.
This Cape Island style fishing boat sits at her mooring as a December storm blows through. Fishers in Nova Scotia work all winter long in the bitter cold and you can really feel the cold in this image. A winter storm had recently passed and in it’s wake the temperature was around -5C and winds were blowing at 30-40 knots. Luckily I was able to take this shot from the comfort of my truck.
Me and my girlfriend have dreams of travelling around the world but since I’m still working on my budget for that, we decided to explore what is available in our backyard here in New Zealand. I am a big fan of Google Pixel 2’s photography so I thought I’d share with the world this beautiful snapshot of a lighthouse in a small town called Castlepoint in New Zealand.
