Light Houses

Pigeon Point Lighthouse, Pescadero, California

High above a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean is Pigeon Point Lighthouse. It was exciting arriving during a period when flowers blanketed the hillsides. Imagine how treacherous it was for mariners traveling at night in these rocky coastal waters. I can still feel the cold wind whipping up from below the cliffs, when I view this photo.

Light House near Sitka, Alaska

You truly feel like you’re at the top of the world, in Alaska. Everything there is larger than life, raw and wild. Heading back out to the Inside Passage from Sitka, you pass Rockwell Lighthouse. The area is peppered with small islands underneath towering mountains to the south. The cloud formations constantly moving, constantly changing, perfect for HDR-type shots. I think I could spend days traveling around and photographing this beautiful corner of the world. My second trip here and it only gets better each visit.

Cheboygan Crib Light, Michigan

Daily Photo:

Not sure what the “crib” means, but it looks like a lighthouse to me. Got off the main highway and kind of stumbled across this lighthouse while looking for a rest room. We were on our way up to Mackinac Island, taking the backroads, and I guess, you never know what’s up around the next bend, and that makes it’s a whole lot of fun, just exploring.

I’m one who likes photographing “leading lines.” Wouldn’t it be cool, if the sidewalk could have been made to line up with the lighthouse. I guess the designers didn’t check with me or other photographers before building this off center sidewalk and rail!

Kilauea Lighthouse, Kauai

Daily Photo:

One of the most photographed spots on Kauai, is the Kilauea Lighthouse. I’ve stopped by here a number of times trying to hit on the perfect clear day. This shot kind of gave me what I was looking for. I shot it as an HDR to cut down on the deeper shadows that were in the rocks. It pretty much went as planned. Definitely a great stop if you’re touring the coast of Kauai.
