Taken with a kite lofted camera from the so-called Kaapsduin (Cape dune). In the foreground a concrete foundation that probably formed an artillery position. Nowadays it is a lookout post with a more peaceful purpose.
This is Bodie Island Lighthouse in North Carolina's Outer Banks near Oregon Inlet. I live over five hours away, but was visiting the area and actually had the good fortune to run into a couple of friends here on this clear night. This is the third lighthouse built on this site and it was completed in 1871. This is a single photo taken with a Nikon D7200 and a Rokinon 16mm lens. I highly recommend this lens for night photos if you are comfortable working with an all manual lens.
