[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fifty miles south of San Francisco, one of the the tallest lighthouses in America. Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse has guided mariners since 1872. I like the white fence. No PP work. Enjoy

Hi Vic,
lovely blue gradient in the sky and the white lighthouse contrasts well against it. The lighthouse looks like its sloping to the left but the window frames are square and level, so I presume there is a slight lens distortion

Hi Vic.

Your dramatic tones from this sky acts as a perfect backdrop to the tones of this scene. The light illuminating agaist the whites are quite hypnotic. tfs

stv ;o))

Good job Vic, excellent weather conditions helped display this lighthouse's beauty.. white and blue go very well together as usual. Your shooting angle is very good but the composition is too tight, left side of the little house is cut and some over-exposure is evident on the white surfaces imho. I've added to my lighthouse theme, thanks..


Extraordinary, a very high lighthouse, and a small house for the keeper.
An international literature on these workers.
The life of manirai, the safety of ships.
With the GPS .....
These giants remain with automatic devices.
Nice picture rich in history.
