Cape Florida Lighthouse

Lighthouse at the southern tip of Key Biscayne. The original lighthouse and cottage were built in 1825 and attacked and burned in 1836 by Seminole warriors protesting U.S. presence in the South Florida wilderness and resisting deportation from Florida to the West. The lighthouse was rebuilt in 1855-1856.

This photo was shot at sunset using the light from the setting sun to illuminate the lighthouse.
