Ten years ago I helped restore the "lantern" of this, the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse. I documented the process via a web page. For a time the Lighthouse Organization hosted that page but after a few years took it down. I have restored that web page and now host it myself. I needed a photo of what the lighthouse looks like now days so yesterday I drove to the site, parked and did the one mile round trip walk to get this photo (my walking connection!).
Returning to my car I noticed a lot of Grass Spider webs with dew on them along the path and used the macro feature on my camera to get this shot!
What a nice walk.

Oh, those glittering beads of dew are great!ReplyDelete
A while back I heard that someone vandalized the fresnel lens at Point Arena with a diamond ring, so they don't give tours up to it anymore.
The second snap was just amazing.....ReplyDelete
Stunning lighthouse shot! Point Cabrillo is one of my all-time favorite spots to shoot photos of.ReplyDelete
That is such a charming little lighthouse.ReplyDelete
Great dew drops! And I agree that your first shot of the Lighthouse is a beaut. :-)ReplyDelete
