Photographer's Note

The light house at Norah Head. This is the same light house as in my post from a few days ago however this time it is front and centre instead of in the distance.
This was taken during a storm and unfortunately I was caught unprepared and got more than a little wet. Being on a headland it was also a very windy exercise. I used a graduated ND filter to try to balance the strong sunset light.

From my previous post ...
Norah Head Light is an active lighthouse located at Norah Head, a headland on the Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia, close to Toukley. It is the last lighthouse of the James Barnet style to be built,and the last staffed lighthouse constructed in New South Wales.
Officially displayed for the first time in 1903, the original vapourized kerosene burner was upgraded in 1923, electrified in 1961 and automated and demanned in 1994, after more than 90 years of being staffed.It celebrated its centenary in 2003.
The concrete block tower is 27.5 metres (90 ft) high, topped by a bluestone gallery. On top of the gallery is the original Chance Bros. lantern. This lantern holds the original housing of the Chance Bros. 1st order bivalve dioptric Fresnel lens. Other important structures include the chief lightkeeper's cottage and assistant keeper's duplex, and a flag house.
The former keepers cottages have been made into guest accommodation sleeping 8 in each cottage and so they can be rented for holiday accommodation.
