My new pet project is photographing Pigeon Point Lighthouse, a two hour drive south on a dark and winding Highway One.

See an earlier post I did on Pigeon Point Lighthouse

I left Marin County at 4AM, figuring it would still be pretty dark at 6AM, especially on a drizzly day. I'll have to give it another try when there is a bit of fog. No shortage of fog in this location, roughly half way between San Francisco and Santa Cruz.

When I get near Pigeon Point Lighthouse I usually think of how many hundreds of time I've passed by. My family would take this route on our frequent trips to visit "Grandma" who lived here in Marin County, so I've got bragging rights on how many times I've traveled up and down Highway One from Marin County to the Monterey Peninsula. (I grew up in Pacific Grove)
