Graeme set off from his bed in the early hours of the morn­ing in the hopes of pic­tur­ing the Nugget Point light­house set against a com­pletely clear sky, with the Milky Way core just ris­ing above the hori­zon. It’s many a pho­tog­ra­pher’s goal, and the im­age would carve another notch on his belt — but as ev­ery ex­pe­ri­enced shooter knows, with Mother Na­ture, noth­ing ever goes quite to plan. “It was com­pletely clear un­til about two kilo­me­tres away from the light­house, and af­ter that the thick­est sea fog I’ve ever seen rolled in,” the pho­tog­ra­pher ex­plained. “The vis­i­bil­ity was so poor in places that even with my su­per bright torch, I could only see about a me­tre ahead of me.” Af­ter wait­ing pa­tiently for a gap in the fog, sure enough, it came, al­low­ing a short 20-minute win­dow for Graeme to se­cure his shot.
