Story behind the photograph
This Coastal Patrol Tower is located in Forster. It is a nice walk along the Wallis lake inlet to the ocean. High level of sea water spray in the air allowed the light from the lanterns to highlight the mist and thus leave a lot of colour in the air.
The Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol was established in 1937 and is the oldest volunteer marine rescue organisation in Australia. It is estimated the men hours volunteered every year by these dedicated people would exceed 14 million dollars in value.
