Could there be a time where a lighthouse is needed more? Actually, I’m not real sure it was very effective in this weather. I was standing pretty close to it (shot with a fairly wide angle, 24mm) and I could barely see the it. Any further away and it would have been completely concealed in the fog. Although I guess that with GPS and radars that lighthouses are not that important anymore.
Anyways, this is Pigeon Point Lighthouse in California. You can find it right on the coastal highway near Pescadero. This is a slightly different angle than what I posted previously.
