My favorite lighthouse and yes I've shot it morning, noon and night all with a smile on my face. This shot is a sunset but equally great at sunrise but my favorite is milky way and the dark skies in this area. Folks travel from all over to shoot this iconic LH at night.

apparently so. Didn't realise that.
In 1910 the original kerosene lamp was converted to acetylene gas which was supplied by a Colt seven-day acetylene generator.

The light was converted to DC electric operation in 1920 with an acetylene burner as a back up lightsource. The light was demanned at the same time. Mains power was connected in 1978. The lighthouse retains it’s original Chance Bros fourth order lantern.

The lighthouse stands on top of the bluff to western side of the mouth of the Mersey River in Tasmania north of the Port of Devonport.

The establishment of the lighthouse ended a history of wrecks in this area.

The Commonwealth assumed responsibility for the lighthouse under the Commonwealth Lighthouse Act in 1915

It is unusual for an Australian lighthouse to have vertical stripes as it’s day mark.

I agree. Im not sure why that was but the location we were at wouldn't allow us to get a much better view point.

Very nice photo, Clyde! I love shooting the Bodie Island light, especially at night. We get to the OBX a couple of times a year, and I always make it a point to get to the lighthouse.

Thanks! It's not my photo (it's an official AF one) but I used to fly them back in the day.
