The Cape St. George Lighthouse, which is located on St. George Island, Florida, was first built in 1833. Time, hurricanes, and natural erosion took their toll on the lighthouse over the years causing it to collapse in 1846, 1851, and again in 2005; but, it has been rebuilt each time.

Since this image was taken at twilight, there was no contrasty lighting to worry about, so exposure was straightforward. This shot was taken at 1/8 sec at f/8 with a 70mm lens on a full-frame sensor with the camera attached firmly to a steady tripod. The main consideration was ensuring the shutter was open at just the right moment to capture the glow of the beacon at the top of the lighthouse.
