FNQ – Cooktown

Captain Cook

Whilst my week in the historic Far North Queensland town of Cooktown was for work, I did get some time to have a bit of a look around. When I first got there on the Sunday I had a walk down the riverfront and around the town and my work finished up early on the Thursday afternoon so I had a couple of hours of daylight to walk up to the lighthouse on Grassy Hill and then take the path down to Cherry Tree Bay, across to Finch Bay and back through the Botanical Gardens.

I then had enough time to drive back up Grassy Hill for sunset and take some photos for a time-lapse movie. It got dark quicker than expected so I adjusted my camera settings after a few minutes to make the images lighter and capture more of the sunset. You might be able to see this in the movie about 3 seconds in, when despite the setting sun it becomes slightly lighter.
