Saturday Light Houses

My second installment to Saturday Lighthouses is of Pigeon Point along Highway 1 in Northern California near Monterey. Please take a moment to read about this hostel/state park. Since I didn't have this in digital format, as this was taken with the old 35mm Nikon, I had to scan it into the computer and try to sharpen it a bit with PicMonkey.  The first shot gives you a bit of the surroundings of this beautiful place, while the second is closer and shows just the lighthouse and one of the hostel homes.



As you can see the view of this is breathtaking.  I love the rust stains around the walkways and on the metal parts of the structure. 

Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend.

Beautiful shots. Lighthouses of New England - that would be a worthy travel theme.

I found my answer in the FAQ's. No. It was closed in 2001.

I love lighthouses! Wonderful pics. They look really good for being scanned prints.

"S-a-t-u-r-d-a-y, LIGHT (houses)" Yeah, I'll have to work on that Weird Al style parody of the Bay City Rollers' song.
I'm glad you pointed out the rust spots, I love that kind of detail.

Love lighthouses - this one is really nice. I'm on the east coast, not too far from the outer banks. Photographing all of them was a passion some years back!

Hello Linda Kay, I have enjoyed your lighthouse photos so much. The only ones we have seen are on the East Coast of the US. I have lots of photos from our 35m camera. Good job with yours.

xo.

Gorgeous. I love lighthouses. We went past one on a bike ride the other day but it was a modern one. They don't make them like they used to.
