This first lighthouse is the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in the US. It was first put into operation in 1764. Sandy Hook is found at the tip of the peninsula just across the harbor from New York.
Very near Sandy Hook high on the hill overlooking the harbor I saw the dual lighthouses of Navesink. With my long lens I was able to capture this photo.
On the very southern tip of the New Jersey shore we visited the lighthouse at Cape May. It is a tall lighthouse that is open for visitors to climb. I took this photo as I walked along the wood walk out to the shore.
One lighthouse I really enjoyed visiting was Hereford Inlet light. This lighthouse is located on the Jersey shore about 1/2 hour south of Atlantic City. It has beautiful gardens that surround the lighthouse. Here a couple of photos of the lighthouse and the gardens.
Atlantic City also has a lighthouse called Absecom. It was hard to get a good photo because of the fence and the lighting but here is one that I was able to shoot.
In the last 8 years I have traveled all around the US and some of Canada photographing lighthouses, as of yesterday I photographed 101 lighthouses. It is always an adventure locating the lighthouses and looking for the best angles for photographs. I hope you enjoy my latest photos.
If you have a hobby you would like to share I encourage you to write about it .
