Point Pinos Golden Hour
A beautiful evening at Point Pinos Lighthouse in Pacific Grove. I love how, if you look really close, you can see the sky and sunset inverted in the lens of the light.

Point Pinos Sunset Panorama
Sunset in Monterey at the Point Pinos Lighthouse. The sea mist was quite heavy from the large waves on the other side of the light house. It made the sunset colors glow beautifully.

Point Pinos Sunset
This beautiful little lighthouse is on the northern most tip of the Monterey Peninsula. At night it's quite bright, but there's always someone around with a bigger light, and this time of day there's no comparison. Still it's quite a beautiful spot! The Point Pinos Lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places, Reference #77000312

Point Pinos Lighthouse, VR
This beautiful little lighthouse apparently is the oldest confinuously operating lighthouse on
the west coast. It's on the northern tip of the Monterey pennisula
just in from a stretch of beach that is a wonderful spot to watch the sunset.

San Simeon Sunset
This was taken the evening before my VR Highway 1 Sunset,
just a little further up Highway 1.
If you turned around from where we were standing
you could almost see the top of Hearst Castle in the hills.
Of course if you looked to the left... and I apologize in advance for ruining the tranquil California sunset day dream you're having right now... there were a bunch of Elephant Seals. And they were quite loud and very comical. I'm sure I have a few shots of them to get on-line soon.
Now back to the regularly scheduled day dream... Right up the road, a little closer to the lighthouse is a scenic point that has less seals, and when we were there they were just laying enjoying the evening sea breeze. One had her flipper over her baby like she was hugging it. So if you'd rather picture yourself there that would work too. :-D
