Default a couple of lighthouses

more from my touring our south west
a couple of lighthouses from the capes
Cape Naturaliste lighthouse, Dunsborough, we did see whales while we were there, but even the 300mm lens couldnt bring them close enough to photograph


Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse


Cape Leeuwin is where the Indian and Southern ocean meet

can you see the dotted line out to sea ?

I couldnt resist this one

f64 would of been good

Very nice photos, John. I love the starkness of #2, and I agree that the FE is a great effect for #3.

I like the last one - that's a very difficult shot to get (and yes, f64 would come in handy for something like that). A very nice series.

these are all great. #2 is classic. good use of the fisheye in #3, and the way you have stacked moon up with it is unique in the last one.

thanks for all the comments
i do like to use the fish eye, likely i use it to much
i maybe should of explained the last one ( i was in a hurry at the time)
the exif is in it
the lens was the da*300 f4 set at f32 and trying to get the moon and lighthouse in focus in one shot, the moon isnt quite in focus, hence the need for f64
i miss the depth of field scale that you used to get on lenses so you could work out the hyperfocal point
