Kilauea Lighthouse

Kilauea Lighthouse in Kauai, Hawaii. The lighthouse was under repair during this shot. The Kilauea Lighthouse was built in 1913 and for a time had the largest lens of its kind in the world. Guiding ships from the Orient it demarked the northernmost point of the main Hawaiian Islands. It was decommissioned in the 1970s and its lamp was turned off and replaced with a low-maintenance beacon.
