Cape Hatteras Light (Custom Print)
Astronomy Photographer of the Year is an annual competition featuring the world’s greatest space photography. Photographers from across the globe compete to take home the prestigious title.
The rotating beam cast from the iconic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is a sight to behold.
To capture this image, I used a 13-second exposure which approximates half of the time for the beam to make a full revolution. In order to break the light beam up into distinct intervals, I covered/uncovered the lens with a notecard during the exposure. - Joshua Rhoades
Our Custom Prints and frames are all handmade to the highest standards. As each Custom Print and frame is made to your required specification, they take a little longer to prepare. Custom Prints are printed on sustainable, matt 250gsm conservation digital paper. Unframed prints are carefully rolled with acid free tissue paper inside a sturdy cardboard tube. Frames are made in the UK from sustainably-sourced woods.
Custom Prints (those which are customised by choosing a size and frame) are made to order and therefore take a little longer than our standard fulfilment times. Please read our Delivery and Returns page for our latest information about UK and international shipping.
Please check the size and frame options carefully so that you are happy as once ordered we will be unable to change.
Every purchase supports the work of Royal Museums Greenwich.
