A pillar of fire by night, of cloud by day #34

Point Bonita Lighthouse

I needed a break from the city, from the suburbs, from daily life and so I dragged Adam along to roam. This is Point Bonita located in the Marin Headlands.

A suspension bridge built for two leads you to this solitary point. The original glass prisms sending a tireless signal; 3 on, 1 off. Over and over sixteen miles out to sea. San Francisco Bay will happily take as many ships as it can, but the lighthouse provides both a warning and safe haven.

It was pouring rain the entire time. The air never smelled so good.

Bonus point to anyone who knows where the title of this post came from.

  1. Nice! For composition I would suggest chopping the lower left hand corner off slightly and push toward the lighthouse since the railing slightly distracts from the main subject.

    Otherwise, looks nice!

    • Good suggestions! I totally agree with you on the railing. Maybe I should rethink my policy of not cropping any of the photos.

  2. What’s really weird is I was just goofing off in Google Earth yesterday and not having seen this photo found the same lighthouse just cruising the coastline. O.o Spooky. ^^
