070310 - Stonington Light


Located on the east side of Stonington Harbor, the lighthouse was built in 1840 but discontinued in 1889. The 62 foot granite structure originally housed a Sixth-Order Fresnel lens. In 1925 it was converted into a museum and the optics removed. When open, people can stand on the platform where the Fresnel lens assembly was once situated.

The image was captured with a Nikon F3 and 35mm f/2.8 PC lens on Ektachrome 64; Bogen tripod.

●    8x10 print / 11x14 matte
