Owls Head Stairs

Other than Aquinnah Lighthouse on Martha's Vineyard, Qwls Head is one of the brightest I've encountered while shooting this series. While the light itself isn't particularly intense, the magnification created by the Fresnel lens makes it significantly stronger. Capturing the stars above proved very difficult when in the direct line of the beam. This lighthouse sits on the point and I'd gotten Coast Guard permission to visit late into the night. The nearby home was formerly used for personnel housing but presently is unoccupied.
