Stratford Point Fog

Stratford Point Fog

On the night I was shooting at the Tongue Point Lighthouse in Bridgeport I'd made plans with the USCG Commander at Stratford Point to shoot there as well. All was great until the drive from Bridgeport into Stamford became like driving into a cloud. Once I reached the point, the fog seemed to have cleared as the stars were shining above the lighthouse. However, from the time it took me to park and gather the gear, the fog enveloped the point. The Commander met me at the front gate and gave a quick though somewhat obscured tour of the grounds and we made plans for my return in a few weeks. I decided to fire off a few frames despite the fog and the result was this dramatic photograph.
