Description
Plum Island lighthouse stands on the west end of Plum Island, which is also the home to the USDA's Animal Disease Center. Access to the island is severely restricted so this lighthouse can only be seen from the beach near Orient Point or from the water.

The photographs shown were shot from the beach near the ferry landing in Orient Point at focal lengths of 1500 and 200 mm.
