"Pigeon Point Lighthouse"
Location: San Mateo Country, Highway 1, California.

This lighthouse is an awesome place to photograph, especially during sunset. This is the image from the north side of the lighthouse. The sunset colors of the background clouds were looking great so I did a long exposure image to create a minimalist effect and further emphasize the lighthouse.
