Two years ago in early November I bought my current and first DSLR camera. I had not done any night shooting prior to my coming to the annual lighting of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse’s Fresnel Lens. I was a nervous wreck trying to get set up, and a fellow photographer even attempted to sabotage me by telling me to do things that made my shots worse.
I came away that evening with a decent shot, but because I used a high ISO a very grainy shot. Well, it’s been two years and they re-lit the lens tonight and I was able to try getting that shot one more time.
I met some wonderful people and got to hang with my friend Paul and even saw another flickr contact I haven’t seen in a while. The lens will not be lit again for another two to four years, so I guess this one will have to be it for a while.
