Little Light O’ Mine

Absecon Lighthouse Lens 3In Atlantic City, New Jersey.

An insider’s view of the huge lens at the Absecon Lighthouse.  The combination of the magnifying power of lenses like this one (the actual light source is a smallish bulb seen at the bottom of the photo) and how high the light shines from above sea level throws a beacon that can be seen from many miles away.  When first lit in 1857, it cast its light 19.5 nautical miles.

There’s nothing like having a little guiding light in your life.
