Currituck Beach Light

From 2010 Blog
- Moving south from Cape Henry Virginia, the next lighthouse is the Currituck Beach light located in Corolla, North Carolina. This picture is taken from the grounds of the old Whalehead Club which is adjacent to the lighthouse. Built in 1875 the Currituck Beach light filled the remaining "dark spot" on the North Carolina coast between the Cape Henry light to the north and Bodie Island to the south. To distinguish it from other regional lighthouses, its exterior was left unpainted. Canon Rebel XTi, 1/500 sec @ f/13.0, ISO 200.
