Slangkop Point Lighthouse, Kommetjie, South Africa
This tall cast iron lighthouse, also known as Slangkoppunt Lighthouse, was built in 1919. It is located near the village of Kommetjie, south of Cape Town on the way to the Cape of Good Hope. Photos taken in August 2010.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
