The Montauk Lighthouse was the first to be built in New York State. It sits on a bluff at the far eastern end of Long Island and helps to guide ships into the Sound. I arrived here with wonderful cooperation from the Montauk Lighthouse Historical Society, owners and caretakers of the beautiful museum and property. I had reached out to them to try and shoot on a night when their security lights might be turned off for better photographs and they readily complied with the request. I took several ferries beginning with the New London to Orient Point on a spectacularly clear March day leading to an equally clear night. Once darkness arrived I was able to turn off the security lights and went about my work, getting several different angles of the lighthouse and keepers quarters. The museum even arranged for a place for me to stay the night and made my return trip on the ferries the following morning.
