062519 - Stratford Point Light


Located in Southwest Connecticut, Stratford Point light is a Coast Guard station not open to the public. For a distant view, take Exit 30 off I-95, and follow Rt. 113 past Sikorsky Airport. Take a right onto Washington Parkway until it ends at Shoreline Drive. Take a left and park near the seawall. You'll need a long lens to capture any detail of the lighthouse. This picture was taken with an old manual-focus Nikon 800mm f/8 lens at sunset on a heavy-duty Gitzo aluminum tripod. By the way, the sun rises directly behind the lighthouse at the end of August.

The image was captured with a Nikon F5 and 800mm f/8 lens on Velvia 100; Gitzo tripod.
