This is a slightly different look at the Lynde Point Light in Old Saybrook. The lighthouse sits at the mouth of the Connecticut River and the night I was there ice floes continuously passed by the point making me wonder how far they'd traveled. Could they have come from as far as Vermont?
I placed the tripod legs into the water and light-painted the tower from about fifty feet away. Any time I can create a separation from the camera and from the object, the lighting always looks better. It was a relatively warm winter night on the point and the lighthouse was in the lee of the wind. It's striking how different the conditions were from this position and from being out at the Saybrook Breakwater light less than a half mile away. Out there the wind was 10-15 mph creating much colder conditions with the wind chill.
