Al,

I was on the Hook from approx 915 to 1030am ... then headed up the hill to twin lights, down the hill by Moby's, then out Rt 36 to the Beacon ...

If we get the predicted snow overnight, then I was thinking of visiting Sea Girt tomorrow ... second week ina row I've had two days off mid-week.

Maybe it was your footprints I was trying to walk in after my accident, especially around the back side ...

Barry, I was behind you by about an hour. Those were not my footprints in the snow, I basically shot from the warmth and confines of my mobile blind :wink: I didn't bother with Conover today but was watching the Coast Guard out in the bay breaking up the ice.

You guys are really giving me some motivation to get out and shoot some winter lighthouses - we haven't had much snow until recently. Al and Barry, your shots are fantastic. Thanks for sharing these lighthouses I haven't seen, and an extra special thanks for braving the cold to bring the snowy scenes! ^:)^

I love seeing the twin lights, one day I'll see them for real. Great job braving the elements, both of you!!

Nice job on those, Al!

I especially like the last photo. The red brick stands out so well against the white snow.

Those pictures are just gorgeous. I need a digital camera, because the old one I use now is just not doing these beautiful lighthouses any justice whatsoever. Man, I thought it was a bit cold at Sandy Hook when WE went in October! I absolutely love that whole area, too! Loved walking on the beach, loved the lighthouses naturally, loved every part of it. I want to fish in that area when weather gets nice. It's a trek, though.

Looking down from whichever tower it was (don't laugh, but I'm not sure if it was North or South tower that we climbed) at Navesink (it was the one "on the left"), my fiance said, "This is my favorite lighthouse now". That changes with each one we get to climb together...

It was the North tower. The South tower is closed to visitors
