Light and dark at Leeuwin’s lighthouse

The Tuesday photo challenge, light and dark, from Dutch Goes the Photo, had me instantly think of this shot from inside the lighthouse. It occurs as you climb the stairwell and looks out onto the tiny graveyard.

Cape Leeuwin is the most south western point of Australia and is named after the vessel upon which the Dutch first sighted the cape in 1622. It was more than 100 years later that Australia was ‘claimed’ by Europeans.
