Pigeon Point Lighthouse

    Newer Older

    Located about halfway between Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay on California's central coast, the Pigeon Point Lighthouse is a stately 115-foot tower with a first order Fresnel lens in the lantern room. The lens is lit between 6 PM and 8 PM every November 15 for it's annual lighting celebration. The light station auxiliary buildings have been converted to hostels, housing up to 50 persons. Lighthouses are all about light so light has been added using Photoshop.

      Isn't Photoshop great? I never would have know if you hadn't mentioned it. This is really beautifully done. A favorite.

      This is a beautiful spot. I stayed in one of their hostels. Nice balance of tones and the light adds that convincing element of a lighthouse!
