Cape Florida Lighthouse

This photograph of the lighthouse was taken from the beach north of the lighthouse in the late afternoon. The original image was in color.

The lighthouse was built as a 65-foot structure in 1825 on the south tip of Key Biscayne, just across Biscayne Bay from what is now Miami. In 1855 it was extended to 95 feet. After being replaced by the Fowey Rocks Light in the water more than six miles southeast, Cape Florida Light was extinguished in 1878. It was also out of service between 1836 and 1847, and then again between 1861 and 1866 because of damage during wars. We have climbed the 119 steps to the top a number of times.

Photographic details: Canon EOS 7D camera w/ EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM lens set at 17mm. Camera was on f/5.6 for 1/5000 sec at ISO 1600.
