Fire Island, an island off the coast of New York, is a treasure. Accessible by ferry boat, the island is made up of a couple of dozen different and distinct communities, each with its own personality. Saltaire, where these photographs were taken, is criss-crossed with wooden boardwalks and the main mode of tranportation is a rusty bike.

The sunset is beautiful over the Great South Bay. The departing ferry and the bobbing swim dock are silhouetted against the deep blue sky as the moon rises over the reeds.
