Sullivan's Island Lighthouse by JonathanLamb

Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse is a unique triangular lighthouse with an eye catching black and white paint job. This soaring navigation aid is over 160ft tall with an incredible view over the beach as the guiding point to Charleston Harbor ships. The tower was originally painted in two shades: white and bright orange. After some complaints, however, about the glaring orange hue that could be viewed from almost anywhere in town, the orange was repainted to a more discreet black. The lighthouse itself is fenced off and is not open to the public, however visitors are welcome to explore the surrounding grounds during the day to snap photos, and look up and admire the towering structure.
