This week’s trek visits the grounds of the Horton Point Light, a simple but noble structure that watches over the Long Island Sound from Southold, Long Island. Weekends within the season offer tours and a climb to the top if you choose, but on a weekday at this time of year, we will have the opportunity to venture without the crowds and experience this place ensconced by the mystique of its history. Outdoor Photo Treks with Miranda Gatewood is sponsored by EastEndArts.org
It’s a maze only in name; not the kind of maze that will challenge your escape. This Mattituck, Long Island seasonal feature is the first stop for a new group of Fall Outdoor Photo Trekkers, a 4-part photography workshop that I conduct through East End Arts, Riverhead, NY. Learn more at East End Arts.
And, if you did forget how to get back to your car amid a sea of golden sunny faces all pointing the way, it’s because you were so enamored with the view, as were all who frolicked with you. Don’t worry; there are plenty of bags of North Fork Potato Chips for sale if you fear being marooned.
This Wednesday, our Outdoor Photo Trek class will tour one of my favorite spots–Greenport, NY. This is the last class of the 4-part session sponsored by East End Arts and we’ll visit the places where I took these images–all within one square mile. If you think of photography as the art of exclusion (think cropping) then the smallest spaces become little universes of detail. Sign up for the more in the next session, a guided tour of incredible landscapes and waterscapes of Eastern Long Island. May the light guide you!
