    Every year, the fresnel lens on the Pigeon Point lighthouse is lit up for two hours. This year, I found out in time to go.

    The first two shots are with my Leica M8 (Voitlander 28mm Ultron f/1.9), but I forgot to check the battery, so most of them are with my GF1 with the 20mm.

    Great series! I clicked on the first one and then followed through on your Flickr stream - very cool! I love the way as I'm scrolling through them that the lights change as does the lighting. Deirdre, as much as I know you are probably in love with that M8, those shots with your GF1 and the 20mm that show the stars just blow everything else out of the water.:bravo-009: Stunning!

    Yes, the GF1 did a great job. Turns out my battery probably was okay after all. Sigh.

    Series I wish I thought of or had time to do. Thanks for sharing! Should be produced in a vertical print/strip (maybe lower number of total prints). I'd hang that on my wall!

    These start off wow and just never stop wowing! Love the silhouettes towards the end just before the light comes on to make the "star" lights!
