I have taken a small poetic liberty with the title as there are far more than 39 steps on the climb up from the beach. This image was taken on 17th March 2010 with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Nikon VR 18-105 zoom lens at a focal length of 18mm.

The image is 2848  x 4288px at 300dpi resolution.

A quote from the Trinity House website:

The present lighthouse, designed by architect Samuel Wyatt, was built by John Matson of Bridlington in 1806 at a cost of £8,000. It was first lit on 1st December of that year. The original lighting apparatus was designed by George Robinson and consisted of a rotating vertical shaft to which was fixed twenty one parabolic reflectors, seven on each of the three sides of the frame. Red glass covered reflectors on each side, giving for the first time in lighthouse characteristics two white flashes followed by one red flash. This was an innovation quickly adopted elsewhere. The lighthouse was oil-burning, with an equivalent candle power of 13,860.
