Standing Tall

 

 

Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, 50 miles south of San Francisco, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest lighthouses in America, has been guiding mariners since 1872.

  1. Beautiful seascapes, Jane. Lovely. We’re ready for summer!

  2. So beautiful. I lovethe ocean. Can’t wait to see it again.

  3. Superbe sΓ©rie ! J’aime beaucoup ! Bien jouΓ© !

  4. Well done, Jane…that beach walker looks like he has the whole beautiful world to himself. πŸ™‚ The surfers appeal to me today, too. πŸ™‚

  5. You have such an amazing eye Jane! Your photos are absolutely exquisite! Thank you so much for sharing them with the world!

  6. How refreshing! Thanks for your work Jane. Love it!

  7. Lovely images! Loved the sense of scale in Standing Tall. It’s hard (for me) to capture a tall lighthouse well, and this one does just that. It probably explains why I like our squat little lighthouse here in Ucluelet…
    Thanks, Jane.

  8. I really like the first photograph with this foreground of yellow and bright flowers which “contrasts” with the blue color of the sea.

  9. Jane, your crisp images, make me wanting to hit the road and travel up North from here.

  10. Lovely pictures of the places. I would like to watch the waves at “Wave Break”. That seems mesmerizing. The tall light house is gorgeous.

    • Thanks, YC. I’m with you, I watch the waves often and it is serene and mesmerizing to photograph. Pigeon Point is the tallest on the west coast- I think tied with Point Arena. Appreciate your visit!

  11. Wow – I love these! Such beautiful pics!

  12. Wow! Loved this post, Jane!!! Love lighthouses! They have such a beauty, purpose, duty and soul!! Bellissimo!!!

  13. Absolutely love your lighthouse photos. I have a fondness for most things nautical. Maybe it explains why I was in the Navy. Some of the best sailors and seamen come from places nowhere near the ocean (or, even the Great Lakes). πŸ™‚

    • Hi David, I’m sure that’s why you chose the Navy and I’m happy these shots evoked some good feelings. Those inland sailors must yearn for the sea. πŸ™‚ Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts.

  14. Wonderful collection, Jane. β€œBeach walker” really speaks to me… how wonderful to be out on that expanse, alone.

  15. Your photos are like looking through a Sierra Club calendar, Jane – all gorgeous! ❀

  16. Quite a varied palette! Your “Ice Plant” photo looks like an army of plantains (I did my grocery shopping yesterday, and they had a whole counter full of them, but not this many). It’s an impressive lighthouse, and I like that tiny house in front of it, it looks like a dollhouse by comparison.

    • Hi Robert, They certainly do! Now I will think of you and that comparison when I photograph them. πŸ™‚ It’s the tallest lighthouse on the west coast- very imposing when you get close. Thanks so much for your great reaction.

  17. According to the same source you cited, “In December 2001, a section of the iron belt course on the exterior of the lighthouse fell off. The lighthouse will remain closed until the structure can be restored.”

  18. oh…no 2 …perfect colour palette

  19. Lovely photos all. It was 108 degrees last time I was in the area with no breeze, so we didn’t have the energy to pull over and explore.

  20. My kind of landscape, Jane. I could be very happy there πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  21. Fine set! Ice Plant for me too! πŸ™‚

  22. Lovely composition to Standing Tall. I never did find an angle I liked last time I went by there. Some nice birds just to the north, though. Raptors for the most part.

  23. These are gorgeous coastal images Jane. I always think there’s something quite romantic looking about lighthouses. πŸ’™

  24. Beautiful! Oh, I love the ice plant’s coloring!!

Love to hear what you think...
