Photo of the Day: Aerial view of White Island Lighthouse, Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire

This photo, taken in September 2007, shows the damage done by a storm in April 2007; a covered walkway between the tower and house was destroyed, and the large solar panel near the lighthouse was washed away. Since then, a new solar power system has been installed along with an LED light, and some repairs to the structures have been completed. The walkway has not been rebuilt.
