Very nice light. Kind of pastel looking. Oh, and when you go out on a boat, please have a camera strap around your neck. Too easy to lose your camera overboard. ;-)a

Thanks. Good soft light and a camera that was known for having that lower contrast look...sometimes I miss the rendering of certain images from that camera...

Tasman Island lighthouse lens, 1906 to 1977
Operated on Tasman Island off the south-east corner of Tasmania, Australia's southern Island State.
The light from the lens flashed every 5 seconds, was said to be visible for 30 nautical miles.
It's lamp was fuelled by kerosene and turned by a clockwork motor.
Access while constructing and operating the lighthouse was difficult, people and supplies were hauled up a 250 mtr tramway.
After 1977 it was automated and converted to a wind powered generator
Displayed at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney.

Quite an interesting history. Thanks for sharing this. :-)


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Interesting, difficult access though, they must've struggled building that. Any chance of a picture of the present lighthouse?
I think we should make that a New Year exercise for Richard. :lol:
So get on yer bike Richard, and don't forget the anti-venom.:lol:

Ray if you'd entered in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race you could have grabbed a photo whilst passing. Assuming you wouldn't be hanging over the side of the yacht as I would  :p
You also realise it's where they bought all those unfortunate soles from your place to here! They'd round Tasman Island and land at their new home.

I'll see what I can muster :-)
Shark nets rather than anti venom

Hi Richard and Backn4th - Your comments aroused my curiosity in the terrain and location for this site. So I Google Earthed it. In this shot the lighthouse seems to be casting a long shadow. Interesting indeed-for such a small island rising to 250m (820 ft).:-) And there are quite a few links available. It seems there is life down-under, after all!:lol::lol:

Race Rocks Lighthouse sits in the Juan de Fuca Strait, a body of water that separates Vancouver Island from Washington State on the US mainland. It is one of two of the oldest lighthouses in the west coast of Canada. When it was erected ships masters found it hard to spot in the fogs that often cover the surface, caused by warm air meeting the cold waters of the strait. The lighthouse master's wife came up with the solution, that of painting of alternative white and black horizontal rings around the lighthouse. Apparently the keeper was so impressed with the idea that he actioned it: having his wife do the painting from a bosun's chair.

The lighthouse stands today much as it was, plus some upgrades to the lighting technology and its occupancy by a large number of breeding sea lions that challenge any human trying to land.
