Sunday Selections: Lighthouse

As I mentioned in my holiday post, we visited the Split Point lighthouse at Aireys Inlet last week, and were able to do a tour, which was quite fascinating. My husband took a lot of photos on the day, and later used Hugin to stitch together some pretty impressive panoramas, such as these:

Looking up at the lighthouse from the ground, with the clouds scudding by, made for some interesting shots and also delivered a convincing sensation of movement (and for me, more vertigo than looking down from the top!)

I love the spiral staircase photos. So freaky :-)

And C's eye through the piece of crystal we were given to examine ... ahhhhhh.

Kim at frogpondsrock runs Sunday Selections each week, a photography meme for people to show off shots that might otherwise never see the light of day. There's always good links to follow if you like beautiful photos!


  1. There is something incredibly romantic about lighthouses. I loved these photos though the spiral staircase made my stomach lurch.
    Thank you so much.

  2. Oh wonderful wonderful photos Kathy. The first spiral staircase reminds me of a photo my friend took in the Gadaffi Mosque. I have always wanted to live in a lighthouse. Thank you for the photos :)

  3. I know just what you mean about the vertigo! These are wonderful photos. I especially like the spiral staircases.

  4. I love the spiral staircase photos. I spent time in a much smaller lighthouse myself just yesterday.

  5. oh I love lighthouses. I want to live in a converted one.
