Yesterday a friend and I visited the historic Fire Island Lighthouse. It is about an hour drive from where I live. If you haven’t made a trip to the Lighthouse it is a must. Here are a few tips if you plan a visit.

  1. The best parking spot is field 5, which is the last parking lot before the Lighthouse. Park at the far left end.
  2. Take the wooden hiking path that leads to the Lighthouse. It is about a 20 minute walk. When we wet there was a barricade due to COVID but they are easy to bypass and most were wearing masks.
  3. Make your way past the Lighthouse to get the best photos (if you are there at sunset). You’ll see what I mean below from my pictures.
  4. Be on the lookout for deer but please do not feed them. They are very friendly but always remember they are still wild animals.
  5. Take your time and explore. There is lots to find if you are curious enough.

Here are a few of the best images. Enjoy.

Just before you reach the lighthouse. I took this angle with the purpose of shoeing the reflection in the water.

My favorite image. This was at the “last light” as I call it. The colors are often most intense at this point.
