Currituck Beach Lighthouse

Redbrick
Gothic revival
Navigation aid

Although not the case when built in 1875, this lighthouse is now surrounded by trees that hide its magnitude. To get this shot, I was standing at the base and made three overlapping exposures to assemble into a vertical panorama. As the last major brick lighthouse constructed on the Outer Banks, this positional indicator still flashes its night beacon at 20-second intervals to warn ships traveling off the coast.

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” – Anne Lamott
