Panoramic pictures of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse feature the tallest lighthouse in the nation, with an iconic black and white diagonally-striped facade. Located on Hatteras Island near Buxton, North Carolina, the original tower was first built on this site in 1802. Cape Hatteras is an extremely important mainstay of the East Coast for the dangerous waterways throughout the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Seated on the point of collision for the cold Labrador Current with the warm ocean stream of the Gulf Current, it has long been the site of many powerful ocean storms. The number of ships destroyed in these waters gave the area the nickname in as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic" during the Civil War.
As the tallest brick lighthouse in the world and one of the most immediately recognizable in appearance, viewing Cape Hatteras Light panoramic pictures makes it easy to see why this memorable structure is a favored visual to display in many homes and offices.
