I have been striking out a lot lately since I came back from Puerto Rico. Not sure if I am missing the sun, ocean, and palm trees or something else.
So I took a drive down to the ocean this morning. Left my house at midnight, drove just over two hours to Barnegat, New Jersey to check out the lighthouse and get some Milky Way shots. I sat there on the boardwalk, 22 degrees and felt like 12 with windchill for three hours. This spot has been on my list for a while, but the lighthouse always scared me because of the amount of light it would give off. While the lighthouse is not an active lighthouse, the beacon does not go around, this little bit of light here and the surrounding areas gave off a lot of light pollution.
So I checked off a spot on my bucket list, will I try it again, probably. Why, you ask? Maybe I was off tonight when trying to shoot, but there was a lot of light.
