I have a thing for lighthouses. I also have a thing for beautiful pictures. I’m guessing neither of these “things” makes me very unique.
There’s Just Something About Lighthouses
photos by Dan Fellow
Whenever we have the chance here at Think Tasmania to share professional photographs captured by Dan Fellow, we relish the opportunity. Especially when those images feature one of our all-time favourite subjects.
There’s something majestic about lighthouses, don’t you agree? Whether you’re gazing far into the distance or staring skyward right up close, they act as more than just a beacon of light for boats in the night.
Dan’s photos have actually inspired thoughts of a series. We’ve already published a feature story about Cape Bruny Lighthouse, but we should investigate more of these beauties individually. Yes… let’s do that. It’ll be fun.
Other Think Tasmania articles to feature lighthouses include…
- Currie Harbour Lighthouse Tour
- Table Cape, for Tulips and More
- The Lightkeeper’s Wife by Karen Viggers
- Tassie Holiday Itinerary
- Edge of the World
Check List of Lighthouses
When Dan compiled this collection showcasing lighthouses, he did admit there were probably a few (at least) omitted. Tasmania is an island after all… that means a lot of coastline, much of it rugged and hazardous for sailors.
Perhaps we should call for images and information from our fabulous community of readers? We can’t be the only ones intrigued by lighthouses. Can we?
Not long ago, the managers of the Table Cape Lighthouse in the state’s north west were seeking a new operator to conduct tours. Hopefully they’ve found someone suitable, because it’s a stunning location overlooking not only the beautiful coastline, but also Tasmania’s prized tulip fields. No doubt social media will soon be awash with images presenting the flowering tulips with a perfectly-placed lighthouse in the background.
Popular Subjects and Secrets Too
Just like our series of rainbow photos, we predict this subject will be similarly popular. Some lighthouses are regularly snapped. Others are less famous, perhaps because they’re not quite so easily accessed. What do you think… what’s the most and least “popular” of all the lighthouses in Tasmania?
