Situated on the Wairarapa Coast, east of Masterton, Castle Point Light was first lit in 1913.
There have been few changes to the Lighthouse Tower since it was erected on a prominent East Coast cliff. Observed as resembling a medieval stonghold or as an impressive sight by many ships sailing towards Wellington from America or Panama.
It is also located near a popular beach for holiday makers on the North island of New Zealand
The Castle Point Lighthouse light shines from a 23 metre high tower and is 52 metres above sea level. The light can be seen from 26 nautical miles (48 kilometres).
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS D60, aperture of f/11.0, exposure time of 1/13 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 17mm.
