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.

  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.

  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™‚

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

  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.

  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.”

  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.

  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.
