Looks like this is K4122, nothing else in this area. But i'm not 100% sure, because didn't find any other photo in the internet to ensure.

Left it open because i couldn't find anything, except on a site about the airforce, the light should be visible up to 40 miles in clear weather.

On navigational chart K4122 is marked as Piha Lighthouse, also elevation and height of the tower looks like right. On the panoramio pictures also there is nothing in these coordinates, but on the google maps something similar could be seen. So probably this is correct number for this (and second) photo.
