Everything Coming Together – Classic Lighthouse Image
Battery Point Lighthouse, Crescent City, CA 2009
Many individual factors go into making a strong, classic image and I strive to make every part of the photograph count. Here, after composing the northern California scene, I paid specific attention to the details within the frame, the breaking waves, catching the revolving lighthouse beam, the background clouds emphasizing the building and even a good location for the bird flying by. Everything comes together to create a timeless sunset seascape.
My only regret with this scene, was leaving too early to catch a great local seafood dinner before the restaurant closed. I have long since envisioned what I could have created after the sun had set, smoothing out the water and utilizing the light beaming from the lighthouse. I guess I’ll have to go back…some day.
