Ever since seeing a glimpse of Haleys Coment, through my fathers telescope as a kid, I've been fascinated with the night sky. Thankfully, the sensors of todays modern cameras can see so much more of space than the naked eye which has allowed for a specific genre of photography to floursih, astrophotography. Its something I'm happy to delve into once in a while (the main issue being the 'Milky Way Season' in the Souther Hemisphere is during the coldest months), and when I do I'm always blown away by the number of stars that can be seen.
This image shows the lighthouse at Aireys Inlet, shining like a beacon, with the nightsky beyond. It always fascinates me how these relatively small lights can be seen from so far away and how many vessels they have given safe passage to over the centuries.
