Living on the Oregon coast has given me a love of lighthouses; this one is gorgeous! I love the lantern room glass and lenses! I had to look up info on it and found this:

"Manukau Heads Lighthouse was New Zealand’s number 12 and the first to burn paraffin (also known as Kerosene) when lit in 1874. During the following 112 years it was illuminated by oil vapor, acetylene gas, and electricity. It was, also rebuilt (1944) on a concrete base and officially ‘retired’ in 1986, when all lantern parts were paced in storage.

In 2006 the lantern and prisms were reunited in a timber replica of the original tower in it’s current location (almost 1 kilometer north of original site). It reopened as a non-working visitor experience with a symbolic relighting 132 years and 23 days from the date of inauguration."

CONGRATULATIONS!!

Don't know why I get double posts - maybe it's because I am emphatic about what I like!

This is beautiful. Love the rosy glow of the sunset, and the design of the light station is delightful, too.
