The lure of lighthouses
South African Lighthouses
I, too, am a fan of lighthouses. During a trip to South Africa a few years ago I photographed these three lighthouses. One is a photo of one on the beach in suburban Capetown and two at the Cape of Good Hope, the most southwestern point of the African continent. The old lighthouse was replaced with a new one that is closer to the water and lower, thus more visible and more useful to sailors trying to avoid the rocks.
