Pigeon Point Lighthouse

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.
