Return to Pigeon Point Lighthouse - 138th Anniversary

Yes, the beams are real. This is a long exposure made when they stop the rotation for photographers. This is really how it looks!!!

The waves sparkled in the moonlight as they crashed upon the rocks below my vantage point. As always the lighting of Pigeon Point Lighthouse annual lighting was a stellar event. The evening was warm and clear with just enough ocean mist to get the brilliant beams of the lighthouse to absolutely glow.
