East Point Lighthouse (Thompson Beach, NJ)

Originally known as the Maurice River Lighthouse, the East Point Lighthouse was built in 1849 in Thompson Beach, New Jersey at the mouth of the Maurice River where it meets the Delaware Bay.  The lighthouse was decommissioned in December of 1941 after it had been automated for several years.  The Maurice River Historical Society was founded in 1971 to maintain the lighthouse and they have done a good job in restoring the condition of the lighthouse after a fire gutted the lantern room, the roof and much of the interior portions of the building and years of neglect had caused overall deterioration of the building's condition. When I was there, they were starting to get setup to host a small wedding ceremony on the grounds of the lighthouse. 

Camera: Bronica SQ-A medium format film camera with a Bronica Zenzanon 50mm lens. I should have probably used a CPL filter to better tame the exposure on the front of the lighthouse.
