Colourful Break-Wall & South Solitary Island


I'm unsure why the break-wall entrance to Coffs Harbour has been painted in such vivid colours but it looks great. In the distance is South Solitary Island which became an uninhabited island when the James Barnet designed lighthouse went electric in 1975.

  2. Well, that sort of harbor will really catch your sight! Makes it less boring too. South Solitary Island matches with the isle itself.

  3. Such an artistic feature - the coloured rocks and the natural right by them! Looks great with that great plain of blue water!

  4. I agree-the coloured rocks look terrific! Those bright colours look great next to the deep blue. Perhaps you could contribute to Mandarin Orange Monday- a photo challenge for each colour:)
