“Takutai” – the Maori coastline.
Overlooking “the nuggets” on the East coast of New Zealand, the aptly named “Nugget Point Lighthouse” has been in service since 1870. Over the years, innovation has meant the original oil-burning lighting apparatus installed by James Balfour has since been replaced by electric lamps linked to diesel generators, and more recently a fully-automated LED beacon connected to the main grid.
Despite the updates, this quarried stone lighthouse retains its original charm and character, with tourists flocking to the balcony each night to watch the stars – some staying through in their sleeping bags until sunrise the next morning.
Shooting away from the sunset to the West, the reflective pinks and oranges light up the sky behind, while the lighthouse itself and leading hill remain in shadow. It may be freezing cold and windy, but it’s quite some view – one that I’ll always remember.
Location: East Coast, New Zealand
