These recently-taken images are of the Bodie Lighthouse on the Outer Banks of North Carolina seen reflected in the waters and showing the saltwater marshes that surround it.
After years of restoration and repair, the Bodie Lighthouse on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is scheduled to reopen to visitors today, April 16, 2013.
The scaffolding has been taken down, the lighthouse has received a new paintjob, the Fresnel lens has been replaced, and the lighthouse interior has been repaired. The doors are schedule to be opened to visitors April 16th.
I have taken many photographs of the lighthouse on Bodie Island throughout the years in all seasons and at all times of the day and night. I have taken photos of it before the sunrise and at sunset. These picture were recently taken after the scaffolding was taken down, but before the lens was replaced and the lighthouse opened to visitors.
The photo with the lighthouse reflected in water was taken from the newly-constructed boardwalk that allows you to walk over the saltwater marshes that border the lighthouse. Lots of wildlife including birds and deer can be seen near the lighthouse. The other photos show the boardwalk and the marsh area, and one of these was brushed into the style of a painted photograph.
The lighthouse was shrouded in a rather unattractive scaffold for yeas, but now the long wait is over. The Bodie Lighthouse has been restored and made even more beautiful than before. If you visit or vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Bodie lighthouse is a must-see attraction.
If you are a photographer or an artist, you can capture the beauty of Bodie at both sunrise and sunset.
