This is Barnegat Light, "Old Barney", which is located at the northern point of LBI, Long Beach Island. It is a beautiful Lighthouse on a beautiful island.
I am extremely fond of lighthouses and make it a point to visit as many as I can, as often as I can. I've been visiting "Old Barney" as long as I can remember and all of my boys had climbed it by the age of 3.
I converted to black and white using the gradient map and applied a crop to this image to remove one of the high intensity lights from the right of the frame. I really wish the ugly fence wasn't there but I think it's to prevent people from getting burned by the spotlights.

*I am slowly moving my archives from my other site here since I am having some trouble with Blogger and broken archives, lack of support, etc. The migration will take some time and if you visit my other blog you will likely see some redundancy.
Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
