I made a return visit to Aquinnah Light, also called Gay Head, in an attempt to get a better photo than what I'd captured earlier in the summer. The problem with shooting this light and trying to capture the stars is the huge contrast between the really bright beacon and the darkness of the sky. I used a 10mm lens because there's little room around the lighthouse to get an effective shot with lenses that are any longer.
