Hornby Lighthouse

Hornby Lighthouse is a heritage listed active lighthouse located on the tip of South Head in Sydney. It’s on a headland to the north of the suburb Watsons Bay.

The iconic red and white striped tower is surrounded by magnificent views, you have Sydney Harbour to the west, North Head to the north, and the expansive Pacific Ocean to the east. It’s an amazing location and well worth a visit if you come to Sydney. It’s where all cruise ships and boats enter Sydney Harbour from the Pacific Ocean.

I went there to take pictures of the lighthouse at sunrise, but when I got there, the sky was grey and overcast. The cloud however had a lot of texture and was moving quite quickly from the wind, so it was the perfect opportunity to take a long exposure. Afterwards I felt the image worked very well in black and white which accentuated the movement of the cloud in the sky.
