Pigeon Point, still has a beautiful 1st order Fresnel lens in its' lantern room. This particular lens was once housed in the lantern room of Cape Hatteras lighthouse on North Carolina's Outer Banks. This image was shot using a 14 mm ultrawide angle lens, which is about the only way in which you can photograph the entire lens from within the lantern room.
