Bodie Island Lighthouse

North Carolina's Outer Banks is home to a number of well known lighthouses, each distinguished by its unique painted pattern. The most famous is the Cape Hatteras Light with its twin spiral stripes.

About 30 miles north of Hatteras is the Bodie Island Lighthouse. The black-and-white banded tower sits on a site surrounded by marshland and provides navigational guidance for mariners on both the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound.

More experimentation with a black and white conversion of a color photo. Sepia tone added and vignetting and light dodging.
