Tacking Point Lighthouse, Port Macquarie.

Went on a short holiday in May of this year. We stayed in Port Macquarie, NSW and I had the opportunity to get a few shots of the lighthouse at different times.

Click on a pic for quick presentation of large images in a gallery. A whole lot better than thumbnails.

Word for today;   Lighthouses…..the quiet achievers.

More to come;     same blog time, same blog channel



  1. I take back everything I’ve ever said about Australia, Bruce. Gorgeous shots.

    Merry Christmas!


    • Thanks Charles, I’m glad you like the images. It might be too soon though, to take back everything you said about Australia. We have our own version of Jaws happening here in Lake Macquarie. A 3m+ great white has been an unnerving resident for a while but is now menacing people fishing in small boats around Pulbah Island (you looked for that a while ago). It has been breaching the surface and coming down hard very close to small tinnies on the lake. Sat 22 Dec it mostly came out of the water (upside down) before taking off with a fishermans catch. This was about 5-6 meters from their boat. Plans are being discussed for either capture and tow out to sea or destroy the rogue shark. This comes right on peak time of Lake usage with school holidays now started and continuing until end of January. I won’t be swimming in the Lake. Maybe I’ll get lucky though with the camera if I go boating.


  2. What a beautiful photography !


    • Thankyou Lala. I’m happy you like them and took the time to say so. Bruce


  3. Lighthouses are indeed the quiet achievers, and also the soft glows during the dark nights (literally and metaphorically). Your pictures are excellent. Seeing them brought back memories of a deceased aunt whose lifelong passion was lighthouse stories, and I hadn’t thought of her in a long time.
    Thanks for the nudge.


    • Thanks Marylin. I’m very glad you like the pics. Was your Aunt a reader or writer of lighthouse stories?
