an evening at the lighhouse

by Jon August. 01, 2007 3860 views

The lighthouse is open once a month in the evening for the public. The summer haze and clouds made obscured the moon and distant landmarks. I’ll return in the fall for clear skies.

Barnegat Lighthouse

172 ft. above sea level

217 steps

claustrophobic ?

repainted gears that once turned the lens

217 steps down

fog is chasing the party boats back to port

I love these...the darkening sequence in the first three, the spiral stairs...all of it is just great.

Wonderful post. I think you caught it at a time when it's best put to use. The stair shots are great fun. I love the night shots too!

Very interesting set. A lot of nice work. Never notice there are so much curves in a lighthouse

i really like the silhouette of the lighthouse against the evening sky in five; the mixture of light in the sky and on the house is perfect.

the shots in the night look like some sort of grand illusion--a flame floating above a white pillar.
