The lighthouse has served as a navigational aid and lamp since ancient times. Lighthouses can often signal dangerous grounds along hazardous coastlines to steer clear of. Lighthouses have declined a bit in use since the invention of electronic navigation systems and GPS, but still a shine a bright light on picturesque shorelines around the world like the image featured above by Robert Dickinson, the Nugget point Lighthouse in New Zealand.
