Point Arena Lighthouse
Lens: Sigma HSM 17-70 Macro Camera: K-3 II Photo Location: Mendocino coast, Northern California ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/50s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: ToddK, 11-03-2018, 07:09 PM

Unfortunately I wasn't there for a spectacular sunset, but a clear day is not that common. This part of the coast is frequently fogged in, so I was happy to get an expansive view.

A wonderful view even if rarely seen, TFS.
You could also drop it into the lighthouse theme thread if you like.

I like this, and I don't think I've ever been here! Will have to put it on my list.

Thanks Jerry. It is approximately halfway between Gualala and Mendocino. They used to have tours that take you up inside the lighthouse. I don't know if they are still doing it.

Beautiful shot! And, yes - they do still have tours: Lighthouse Tours - Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers, Inc. On my list to climb!

Thanks Jim! I climbed it many years ago, before my camera obsession. I need to do it again and get some shots.

A really good view of lighthouse and the reason for having it.
