I was out on Point Reyes to photograph sunset and evening at the Point Reyes Lighthouse. It’s about half a mile walk from the parking lot to the stairs that lead down to the lighthouse, the most Western spot of land in continental North America.
As I wandered around this spit of land before Park Ranger Craig Morgan opened the tour, I looked back. I might as well have been out to sea. In the furious wind, the waves crashed on the distant shore, the great beach of Point Reyes in the light of the setting sun.
