Sunset Blues - Pigeon Point, San Mateo County, California

Portfolio & Services


My Sunday was spent shooting up around the Pigeon Point lighthouse along San Mateo's rugged coastline. Kendra and I split our time between shooting the lighthouse and the beach on the northern side.


Conditions were, well, stormy. We lucked out and the rain that greeted us on the drive up, quickly dissipated upon arrival. I'd say the biggest challenge of the day was choosing where to shoot. The lighthouse competed for attention with the rocky shore.


In the end, we shot at both locations...twice. The storm and light shifting throughout the day.


The rocks and beach in this shot are dark, almost black. Since there was a distinct lack of reflected light, I used my polarizer to help bring out the color and definition in the sky, which obviously was the star of the show on this day.


Thanks everyone for stopping by and viewing and commenting my work. I will be making my rounds later today!
