“Sydney is blessed with many headlands and beaches to catch the sunrise. I was on my way to South Head early one morning when I passed the Vaucluse lighthouse which was at that moment lit up by the the first golden rays of the sun arising from the ocean. Opportunities to capture this dawn light lasts a little more than a few minutes so I had to work fast. The Macquarie Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in Australia, built in 1818 and some navigational aid has existed at this site since 1791. Francis Greenway, a convict architect, gained emancipation in recognition of his outstanding work in designing the lighthouse.”
