Cape Byron lighthouse

Friday 19 May 2006

I was doing some survey work at Cape Byron lighthouse yester­day. In the tower, on the level below the main light, there is a window facing Julian Rocks not far offshore. A red light in this window gives warning to sailors to watch out for the hazard. It also makes a magic atmosphere inside the lighthouse.

At dusk the inside of the tower is lit by the last of the daylight coming in the window, mixed with the focussed band of red from the auxillary light.
