Kiama Lighthouse, NSW South Coast Australia

This was the first time that I have been to Kiama when the light was good. I have planned my trip well and reward with one of the best sunrise I have seen so far this year. I don't get to see sunrise much but I reckon it's just a bit better than sunset. Everything seems quiet and peaceful and you don't have to fight with anyone for a view. I was one of the first to get to the light house when the light house had light.

I took some HDR photos but haven't have the time to process that yet. I reckon it was one of the most beautiful photo I have taken of light house up to now. I was on my way to Milton and end up bought a book about the history of lighthouse around Australia. There are 138 functional/operational lighthouses around Australia. I have taken at least 10 so far from memory. The book cost me $10 used but it's worth it I reckon just to learn a little bit more about my subject. Also act as a target for me to shoot at. 

My goal was to photograph all the post office around Australia, mind as well collect lighthouses since I'm going to travel to all this locations. And Australia is an island nation, why not take photos of lighthouses and add to my photo collections. That was my sister idea, I though it was a great idea so I'll take it on. Kiama Lighthouse is the first that I have written about in my blog but in due time more light houses will light up my blog.
