Blissful moments: An Umhlanga Rocks light house captured at the right time charms many

As a kid l always marvelled at light houses when l saw them, even today as an adult l still do, l think they are fascinating structures. A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and to serve as a beacon for navigational aid, for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. 

Many recently went crazy over a lighthouse from Umlanga after this post was made.👇🏾

This lighthouse is known as the place of light it was completed in 1954, this 21m high circular concrete tower has a light range of 24 sea miles at a focal plane height. The fixed red light enables ships waiting to anchor in the outer anchorage, to monitor its position. If the red light is undetectable, it suggests the ships anchors have probably dragged and is too close to shore.

Many people could not stop admiring the lovely structure as they saw the lovely pictures of it. A lot of people felt inspired by the post, one gentleman said, "It is so lovely to see such posts in these difficult times."

What's your take on this picture?
