We are looking at a vertical image of a lighthouse using a nine to sixteen ratio. Our perspective is from ground looking up.
Starting from the bottom of the image, we see the landscape and the base of the lighthouse next to a small building.
The lighthouse is round with a wide base at the bottom and becomes smaller towards to top. At the top of the lighthouse, there is a structure housing the beacon light. The structure has a shield designed to block a portion of the full 360 degree output of the beacon. The unblocked portion of the beacon is shining through the structure in a direction slightly off to our right.
The scene shows either a sunrise or a sunset happening outside the image. The light from the sun is casting a soft glow on the horizon and on the left side of the buildings. The night sky is visible starting roughly a third of the way from the bottom of the image to the top of the image. The night sky is dotted with stars and constellations.
There is a faint glow of the beacon light against the night sky.
