Cape Hatteras Lighthouse - Photo by Cam Bradford

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse protects one of the most hazardous sections of the Atlantic Coast. Offshore of Cape Hatteras, the Gulf Stream collides with the Virginia Drift, a branch of the Labrador Current from Canada. This current forces southbound ships into a dangerous twelve-mile long sandbar called Diamond Shoals. It is the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States and measures 198.49 feet from the bottom of the foundation to the top of the pinnacle of the tower. The tower is quite photogenic with its unique black and white spiralling paint job. (Cape Hatteras National Seashore, North Carolina, USA)
