AWARD WINNER: This time lapse movie was judged Best Animated Aesthetic Sequence at the 2018 David Malin Awards, Australia's premier astrophotography awards.
I was fortunate to be able to spend 6 weeks as a volunteer caretaker at Cape Bruny Lightstation, courtesy of the Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service in July 2017. This entitled me to access to the disused convict-built lighthouse tower after dark, which I was able to illuminate with candles on the stairs, and a lamp inside the lens. Having such unrestricted access at all times of the night was incredible.
This short is a collection of many many solo hours out under the night-sky.
