18mmcity view

It is 94 steps up an cast iron spiral staircase, then a 10-rung ladder up to the light room of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse. I was part of an 8-person tour up the Lighthouse, which was built in 1764. It was very crowded up there! You can see Brooklyn on the horizon, over the dunes of Sandy Hook and the outer railing of the lighthouse in the foreground, captured at the 18mm widest focal range of the 18-250mm zoom. I used a circular polarizer to make the clouds pop and cut some of the glare on the glass windows of the lighthouse. Tours at this lighthouse run from 1:00PM-4:00PM daily, which can be a tough time to make nice photos, especially in the summer when atmospheric haze is high! (1/125 f6.3 ISO100)
