Photo: Lighthouse Cloud Formations Coastal Scenery

The scenery from the Cape Palliser Lighthouse is stunning as the cloud formations swirl above the coastal regions of Wairarapa on the North Island of New Zealand.

This photo of the Cape Palliser Lighthouse in Wairarapa on the North Island of New Zealand is fascinating as the cloud formations have moved in and spread themselves thin across the sky over the coastal region. The rays from the sun briefly squeeze through where they can throughout the cloud formations reflecting some light onto the coastal shoreline.

Since 1897, this lighthouse has been located along the coastal landscape of Cape Palliser and marks the way for vessels traveling along the notorious Cook Strait of New Zealand. The lighthouse is eighteen metres high and stands above the sea at a height of 78 metres with a light that can be seen across the waters for forty-eight kilometers.

Not only is the scenery from the Cape Palliser Lighthouse incredible as you look out and beyond the small town of Rocky Point in one direction and for miles across the coastal waters in other directions, but the lighthouse has kept many vessels safe over the years. ... continue below the picture...

... The currents can become very ferocious in these coastal waters and the winds can whip up the Cook Strait causing the sea to appear very angry.

Up until 1986, there was a lightkeeper that made sure the beacon on the lighthouse was working, but it then became automated like a majority of the lighthouses. Many tourists pass through Cape Palliser, New Zealand and visit the lighthouse where they can enjoy the scenery. Watching a sunset from the Cape Palliser Lighthouse is breathtaking, but it is very unique scenery when the cloud formations swirl across the sky. The waves lap up along the coastal shoreline as the odd car passes below on the road to Rocky Point and the cloud formations keep people guessing on what type of weather pattern is sweeping across the Wairarapa region.
