I really can’t think of anyplace in the U.S. that I have been that is more beautiful to me than the Old Point Loma Lighthouse overlooking San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean. I could spend hours and days there with my camera shooting the lighthouse, the bay, the ocean, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary just down the road and the newer lighthouse several hundred feet below this one, right on the beach.
This posting refers to “a beautiful light” which to me has double meaning in this case. The lighthouse itself is beautiful but so is the late August evening sunset falling on the scene and the structure. The low side-lighting also emphasizes the texture on the side of the building. It pays to capture your photos in the golden hours of early morning or early evening for the warm glow and low angles!
