Photographer's Note

Here is a view of the New Cape Henry Light taken from the small hill at the base of the Old Cape Henry Light in the previous posting. This light is 157 ft (48m) tall and you can see that construction techniques changed in the intervening 80 years. Although the new light is about 100 yards (meters) from the old one, replacement was deemed necessary because of fears of stability of the foundation of the old one.
