Point Sur Lighthouse

Point Sur Lighthouse at Sunset

The Point Sur Lighthouse sits atop a 361-foot-tall rock at the head of the point. It was established in 1889 to guide ships transiting between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It is open for tours and if you’re visiting Big Sur, it’s worth a visit.

I was there when tours were scheduled, so took the opportunity to climb the rock (it’s not difficult) and shoot some photos. However, my favorite image was taken from the road at sunset. There’s a fence keeping the public out of the area, but captured the lighthouse in the setting sun.

I am a long-time photo hobbyist, and picked up my first camera (my mother's box camera) when I was in elementary school. I enjoy photographing landscapes, especially in California and the Southwest, including the Four Corners region of Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. I also enjoy photographing historical reenactments, powwows, and local events. My favorite events are powwows, which are held throughout the warmer months in Virginia and the surrounding area. I am an organizer with the Richmond Photography Meetup Group. Please join us if you live in Central Virginia. I am also a moderator for the Lightroom Help Group on Facebook, and if you're a Lightroom user and Facebook member, you should check us out. All images © 2008-2017 Mario Dennis
