The Pensacola Lighthouse Light

A lighthouse is one of those buildings that everyone likes. They stand out in a crowd and really makes the place shine. You know what I mean. Living along the Gulf coast, we don’t see many lighthouses. But during our last visit to Florida, my family visited the Pensacola Lighthouse that sits on the  Pensacola aval Air Station (NAS)

There has been a lighthouse in that area since 1823. The new, and current, tower is 150 feet tall, and sits on a 40-foot bluff located on the NAS, placing the light 190 feet above sea level. It still remains an active aid to navigation. 

This view is at the top of the tower, looking up into the lens assembly. It slowly rotates, even during the day, so I had to be fast taking a multiple exposure HDR sequence.
