[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After the tragic events following the shipwreck of the barque "City of York" in 1899 sailing from San Francisco to Fremantle (port of Perth), and the loss of 11 lives, a second lighthouse was constructed at Bathurst Point, to augment the existing lighthouse in the centre of Rottnest Island, which couldn't be seen by ships at sea during bad weather.

Hi Chris,
Beautiful lighthouse well presented in a nice point of view of the beach,
Nice perpective and beautiful seascape with beautiful naturel colors and light,
Excellent composition Chris,

I like the centered position of the lighthouse in this shot, Chris!
Great focus with amazing color tones where the peculiar formations of the clouds at far adds drama into the scene.
The sharpness and DOF are well done, and colors are natural.
Well done!

Hi Chris,

Not only a beautiful beach scene, but with the bonus of a lighthouse. DOF is excellent, and the color saturation is very pleasing. The clear blue water is wonderful, TFS.

Hi Chris,
amazing beach scene. I could just jump in! Th ecolors are superb. May be I would have liked a bit more water in the composition to the left.


Hi Chris,

The curve of the beach is sending my eyes toward the light house which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the sea, of the beach and of the lighthouse. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


A pleasant and agreable piece of earth, charming colors, delicate and light. The curved shore drives very well the eye into the lighthouse, well composed.

Very nice Chris,
Well composed with the waves leading the eye round to the lighthouse, the water looks a lovely colour

Good morning Chris,

Superb sea hem that comes beautifully die on the golden sand.
The lighthouse is still used for navigation,
with its soft color, here he plays the Star!
Composition subtle tonality gradation in high turquoise.
Wonderful image. Well done for the careful presentation.
Kind regards.


Hi, Chris. The colors in this panoramic scene are awesome. Great POV in this composition. The curved shoreline and the lighthouse add to the beauty of this scene. Cheers.

Bonjour Chris,
Superbe composition marine avec une belle profondeur créée par le rivage qui nous conduit vers le phare...
Les couleurs émeraude de la mer sont superbes le reste aussi d'ailleurs....
Belle netteté des détails et de jolies couleurs ainsi qu'une superbe lumière font de ce cliché un excelle t travail!!!
Bravo et amitiés

I like the semicircle of seawood contrasting with the semicircle of the water and the lighthouse forming another contrast. Nicely composed with great colours.

Bom dai Chris

Hello Chris, isn't it strange, our fascination with lighthouses?
This is a beautiful shot;a lovely PoV and excellent DoF.
There is even the merest hint of a reflection of the lighthouse on the wet sand.
The sea looks so inviting.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Awesome seascape! Love the colors of the sky and the ocean. Good composition with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
