Contributor Joshua Paul Gardner used a DJI Phantom drone to create this amazing video of an important lighthouse in the South of England.  The Godrevy lighthouse was built in the 1850's on St. Ives Bay, on the northern side of the western tip of Cornwall.  It was built as a navigation aid around the Stones Reef, which had caused many shipwrecks over the years.  In 1854, a passenger ship with about 40 onboard wrecked on the reef, providing the final impetus for the lighthouse to be built.

The South Stack Lighthouse is built on the summit of a small island off the north-west coast of Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales. It was built in 1809 to warn ships of the dangerous rocks below.  The lighthouse is located on a small island reached via a descent of 400 steps down the steep mainland cliffs. This video is part of Joshua Paul Gardner's series of drone videos on the iconic landmark, one of the most well known lighthouses in the world.


Point Judith Light // DJI Phantom 4 Pro


The Point Judith Light is located on the west side of the entrance to Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island as well as the north side of the eastern entrance to Block Island Sound. The confluence of two waterways make this area busy with water traffic and the waters around Point Judith are very cold and dangerous. While there have been many shipwrecks off these coasts even with active lighthouses, it's safe to assume that the toll would have been far larger without them.

Nobska Lighthouse sits between Buzzars's Bay and Vineyard Sound on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the USA's New England region.  Constructed in 1876, the lighthouse is an important navigation point for water traffic on the south side of Cape Cod as well as traffic to and from Martha's Vineyard island.  Contributor Ryan Smith created a beautiful drone video of the lighthouse, which is a designated site on the USA's Historic Register.

Navigating between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea involves passing near various points on the coast of Denmark, and the going can be treacherous due to winds, currents, and narrow passageways, in addition to at times heavy traffic.  In this video, contributor Magnus Bo Hansen used a drone to create a bird's eye view of the Rujberg Knude lighthouse, which sits atop a 60 m (200 ft) cliff overlooking the North Sea near the northern tip of the country.
