Point Sur Lightstation one of those landmarks that became famous all over the world. It is located in one of the most scenic parts of the famous Big Sur coastal drive, arguably the most beautiful cost drive in the world. Every tourist who took Big Sur coastal drive, even partly, has multiple pictures of Lightstation.
I am not an exception. I photographed Lightstation on many occasions, in different weather, and from various vantage points. Here are some of my photos of Lightstation:
- Cows at Point Sur Lightstation (California)
- Point Sur Lightstation at Sunset (California)
- Early Morning in Big Sur (California)
- Big Sur – Sunset / Sunrise Colors (California)
The day I took the featured photo, the weather was less than favorable for photography. The sky was boring without any clouds and the air was humid and hazy. This is when I decided to frame the shot to minimize the effect of the sky and concentrate attention on the leading lines in the foreground with Lightstation as the main point of interest.
It was a simple and uncomplicated shot. I used a tripod and took 3 bracketed shots.
