Waiting For The Lighthouse Tour

A couple of times a day the National Parks Service have small group tours of the Cape Byron Lighthouse that include the all important lantern. I was envious as I watched the Ranger use a very old key to unlock the door and reveal the traditional circular staircase that 15 people were about to ascend. Oh well!, we can save that visit for another day and use it as a reason to return to the spectacular Cape Byron.
I still have a few posts to go on Cape Byron but my last will be another Icon of the Northern New South Wales; and it's an unexpected animal!. Can you guess!
Click here to see my first icon: predictable but still correct.

This is a Skywatch Post. Click here for other heavenly views; thanks to you all.


  1. A beautiful day in Byron! Perfect framing for the view, well done!

  2. The framing of this photo couldn't have been any better! Did someone say Lighthouse tour? Cool!
    Regards from EAGAN daily photo

  3. A delightful capture through the archway - just perfect!

  4. I like very much how you framed this shot.

  5. great framing of one of our favourite places

  6. Peering at the sky through an archway must be one of the most delightful ways to view the heavens!


    The sky-seekers, some people say,
    Do not favor night over day;
    They always look up,
    The sky is their cup,
    And keeping it full is just play!
