Photographer's Note

This is one of the several lighthouses dotted around the Victorian coast. It's located on one of the points of land that marks the entry to Port Phillip Bay, the route taken by ships bound for the port of Melbourne. This one, at Point Lonsdale, is on the western side of the treacherous entry to the bay, about 70km by crow's flight from the city. From here one can watch the pilot boat go out to meet the freighters, and the pilot himself climb by rope ladder on to the waiting ship. I liked the sky and clouds and the distant hills and tiny figures on the beach. I applied neat image for the first time ever, hope it looks OK. Also increased saturation and lightening a little and the minimum sharpening in Photoshop Elements.
