New Canal, LA, 2018, by David Zapatka, who noted “We had to rig a large piece of material on an elongated (12 foot) pole and the lighthouse keeper held it in place to shield the foreground cove from harsh light coming from a bulkhead streetlight. Without doing this, the light prevented us from getting the reflection on the water. I’d photographed here the night before and was frustrated by the bright lamp. The keeper’s solution was the long pole usually used to retrieve floating items off the water.”
