Macquarie Lighthouse – Sydney, Australia

From Wikipedia: “The Macquarie Lighthouse, also known as South Head Upper Light, was the first, and is the longest serving, lighthouse site in Australia. It is located on Dunbar Head, Vaucluse, about 2 kilometres (1 mi) south of South Head) near the entrance to Sydney Harbour. There has been a navigational aid in this vicinity since 1791 and a lighthouse near the present site since 1818. The current lighthouse was completed in 1883.”

FYI: I kept both myself and my tripod behind the fence at all times, contrary to other photographers actually suggesting climbing over the fence for a better shot.

This was captured with my Canon 17mm Tilt-shift Lens in landscape orientation at f11 on Canon 5D Mark III. Lee Filters 0.6 graduated ND as well as the Lee Filters Landscape Polarizer Filter used.
