Fire Island Lighthouse
Checking out what goes on in the Fresnel room. To get these shots I’m playing dodgeball with the swinging armature using a GoPro Hero 5. Looking North, the lighthouse offers great views of the Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean toward the south.
The fixture contains two 1000-watt bulbs, which rotate in a counter-clockwise direction, giving the appearance of a flash every 7.5 seconds. The light is visible for approximately 21-24 miles. In 1984, the Fire Island Lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
