Corny Point Lighthouse is yet another timeless scene on the Yorke Peninsula, though it seems a little less known than many of the other icons around. I visited here the day before at dawn and the tide was very high with large waves crashing over the rocks I am standing on to take the photograph. Once again the unusual tidal patterns of this area had lulled me into a false sense of security. I thought I had the composition I was after, I was just going to come back the next day and try and get the shot. Normally from day to day the high and low tide times will only change by one hour.
To my complete surprise on my return the
next day, I discovered that the tide was completely low, exposing rocks
and features that I had not seen the day before.
