Cape Henry

From Cape Henry
Landmarks of Our Nation's Beginning is on the City of Virginia Beach's official seal along with the original Cape Henry lighthouse and the First Landing Cross. This picture shows the two Cape Henry lighthouses. The old lighthouse on the right dates from 1792. It was the first federal construction project under the Constitution. The "new" lighthouse on the left was built in 1881 and remains in use today. Canon 40D, 1/160 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 100.
