Colorful Skies- Pigeon Point Lighthouse illuminated


I had posted a picture of Pigeon Point Lighthouse earlier ... Here is one more ... The old lens is illuminated once a year- first Sunday of November just for 10 minutes and a big crowd of photographers line up to shoot the light. I too was there, but wasn't aware that the place I was standing wasn't right for perfect shot. You see missing streaks of light?! Well, November cold on the shores of Pacific ocean with pitch dark sky ... and the lighthouse ... choices were ... both or nothing!
