The 219 Steps of The St Augustine Lighthouse

Lighthouse Steps


From the archives, another view of the famous lighthouse in St Augustine Florida. The St. Augustine Lighthouse rises 165 feet above sea level and contains 219 steps. At the top, a first order Fresnel lens serves as the beacon. The St. Augustine lens consists of 370 hand-cut glass prisms arranged in a beehive shape towering twelve feet tall and six feet in diameter.

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great Weekend!

  2. I’m a sucker for a good interior lighthouse shot, and this one is fantastic. Love those spiral stairs.

  3. This is a terrific image Mike. Excellent perspective.I’ve always wanted to shot inside a lighthouse but haven’t been able too yet.

  4. What a killer shot Mike. Love the vanishing point and the pattern of the steps.

  5. Sweet composition, Mike. This has to be one of the best lighthouse interior shots I have ever seen.

  6. Wow, Mike, this is mind-altering! It really takes on a strong abstract feel to it when you explore the frame a bit. Love the lines and shapes here, a really strong image to view and enjoy my friend!
