Pigeon Point Lighthouse

On Tuesday we took a little ride down the coast and stopped to visit the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. I had my Leica M-9 with a 35mm lens and my Nikon D300 with a 70 to 300 zoom lens with me. Spring is a beautiful time of the year on the Northern California coast with wild flowers blooming and some spectacular scenery. Here are a few pictures from this afternoon of exploring.

The lighthouse and this out building are surrounded by chain link fencing. You can still make out the interesting architecture and the ravages of weather and time. Leica M-9

Two visitors enjoying the view from the rear observation walkway. Even thou the day looks spectacular the wind was blowing strongly making standing out there a bit chilly. Leica M-9
