This was a weekend trip to attend the First Annual "Lighting of the Light" at the Montauk Point Lighthouse, in Montauk NY. Driving through the night I arrived at my destination early Saturday morning just in time for sunrise at Camp Hero State Park, a short ditance from the lighthouse. Slinging around 4 cameras (The Canon 40D, 50D, 5D and and infrared converted D60) the day was spent at the lighthouse and seeing local attractions such as the wonderful historic windmills in the area and preparing to shoot the event that night. Watching the illumination of the Christmas lights that outlined the lighthouse was a spectacular sight. I will never forget the oohhs and ahhs of the crowd as the twinkling lights that surrounded the lighthouse defined it from the dark night sky. The hours passed too quickly and soon it was sunrise and time to head back home. An incredible journey to an incredible place!
