Photographer's Note

Pensacola Lighthouse located at Naval Air Station-Pensacola which is also home of the Blue Angels flying exhibition team.

The lighthouse's first order Fresnel lense was lit on new years day 1858 but taken down during the American Civil War in 1861 by Confererate troops. Union troops re-took the lighthouse in 1862 and lit the station again. The lighthouse was "electrified" in the late 1930's and manned until it became automated in 1965.

Recently tours of the light house and dwelling have been opened to the public on weekends.

PP Notes: Cropped, resized for web and sharpened once. If someone can help... how can I use photoshop to eliminate the splotches which appeared in the sky after I resized the image and sharpened it?
