The 1896 light house at Cape Leeuwin is in the far south west corner of Western Australia. It is famous for its wild weather and that came later in the day that we were there.
The cape gets its name from a Dutch ship that passed that way in 1622.

Great capture of the whitewashed brickwork against the dark sky. I also like the vegetation in the foreground and the inclusion of people in the image.

The light is beautiful. The white lighthouse contrasts with the dark sky. It gives a real atmosphere to the picture.

Oh, the white of the lighthouse shows up beautifully against that dark, ominous sky!
Your shot is really well composed, colourful f/g, strongly positioned focal image, excellent contrasting b/g, sharp textures and a couple of people for human interest and scale.
Have a great week,

Hello Ian - The light here is perfect and the details on the lighthouse are perfectly sharp and textural. I love the sky it forms a wonderful contrasting backdrop and adds the right mood to the subject. Warm regards rosemary
