This iReport is part of an assignment:
The lure of lighthouses
Slangkop Lighthouse At Dusk
Completed in 1919, the Slangkop Lighthouse became fully automated in 1979. The tower is about 100 feet tall and its light can be seen 33 nautical miles out to sea.
I arrived around sunset and in this image chose to emphasize the beautiful “afterglow” light and surrounding area, in addition to the lighthouse and caretaker’s building. The rocky surf zone is thick with the dark fronds of giant kelp plants.
