lighthouse

Pigeon Point Lighthouse near Pescadero is one of the two tallest west coast lighthouses at 115 feet.  It was built and equipped in 1871-72 and its first-order Fresnel lens measures 16 ft x 6 ft, weighs 2,000 lbs and consists of 1,008 separate prisms.  It was a little foggy the day this pic was taken, lending a bit more atmosphere to the shot.
