The Kilauea Lighthouse is on Kauai, Hawaii, USA. It was dedicated in 1913. This is a close up of the Fresnel lens that is original to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is currently being restored and is on a 203 acre wildlife refuge. I liked the geometry of the glass panes as well as the Fresnel lens.
