Back to the Lighthouse (again)

Slangkop Lighthouse is like a colossal magnet the way it keeps pulling me back to try and capture the perfect shot.  I should have waited until there were dramatic clouds and a blazing autumn sky to photograph, but this iconic landscape still gives me something different every time I drive there at sunset.


Maintaining Slangkop Lighthouse

I wouldn’t want the job of erecting the scaffolding to paint Kommetjie’s landmark 33 metre tall lighthouse for any amount of money.  But even with the metal embellishment, the tallest cast-iron tower on the South African coast is a striking sentinel watching over the sleepy village.
