Altered Reality

Facebook : Aegir Photography A dedication to the Autumn that wasn't on the east coast of Australia. Much warmer temperatures this year meant we didn't get the blaze of colour in the Blue Mountains that so many photographers like to capture. This is an altered image done in Ps, taken outside Breenhold Gardens in Mt Wilson. Nikon D800 & Nikkor 14-24mm. PP in PS CC using Raya Pro, Nik Software and luminosity masks.

Point King

Facebook : Aegir Photography Daytime long exposure of the lighthouse ruins at Point King, on Albany harbour, Western Australia. Following the end of the Crimean War in 1856, a return of the profitable mail boat service from England, via Albany, to the eastern states was anticipated and the need for a lighthouse into the harbour was foreseen. The British Government proposed to construct two lighthouses in the area in 1857, one on Breaksea Island and the other at Point King, on the understanding that the local government met the running costs. Construction commenced shortly afterward and the prefabricated lights arrived in June; the project was completed later in the year and the lighthouse commenced operating on New Years Day in 1858 with William Hill employed as the light keeper. The original lighthouse consisted of the keeper's house situated 47 feet (14 m) above the high water mark on the granite point. The building had a 17 feet (5 m) high square wooden tower equipped with an oil-fired light visible from 12 miles (19 km) away. The light was operated manually and the keeper lived in the dwelling where the tower was housed. The lighthouse was made redundant in June 1911. The building remained unused for many years with the roof and tower lost many years ago. In 1995 a conservation plan was prepared but by 1999 no work had been carried out. In 2011 the Albany City Council set aside A$20,000 to stabilize the ruins. Nikon D810 & Nikkor 16-35mm, Firecrest 16 stop filter. PP in PS CC using Nik Software and luminosity masks.
