Rotating Aero Beacon, Pigeon Point Lighthouse photo

Rotating Aero Beacon

Before they illuminated the Fresnel lens, the regular rotating beacon was operating. The beacon is located on the seaward railing outside the lightroom. In this time exposure, you can see it sweeping to the front, blocked to the sides, and projecting backwards through the Fresnel lens. The Fresnel lens actually produces mini beams.
