Photographer's Note

This is Cape Hatteras Lighthouse seen from the woods between it and the beach. The lighthouse was erected in 1870 and is the tallest lighthouse on the east coast, and the most recognized lighthouse in America. The lighthouse was moved almost a mile from its original location in 1999, due to coastal erosion. Although you can still see the foundation where it used to stand, the sea is getting closer and had it not been for the move, we would have lost this timeless treasure. This was taken last April, before the tower was open for climbing. However, I have personally been up the tower and the view is just spectacular. I have enhanced the photo to make it look a bit older and to set the mood.
