This little house sits right next to the Point Reys Light House (North of San Francisco). It's used by the Light House keeper during the winter months when access to the Light House becomes very limited due to weather conditions.It's absolutely beautiful up there.

Mike, I don't know exactly what that is for. The door is actually on the left side (you can see a bit of a concrete patio. I'll ask next time I go there.

Boyle,I like well saturated images. However, I must say that the rock formation is not that red/orange. The same with the house roof. I took this pictures usinga Moose warm polarizer filter, so the colors were already a bit unnatural to begin with. But, as always, it's all a matter of preference...whatever appeals to the eye!!!

Nice shots. I like the boosted color of the cliff, but the lighthouse obviously is old (it's rusted), so a faded red roof gives it more history. But yeah, it's all about a person's preference.

Thanks, Rey. Have you been to Point Reys? It's a bit of a long drive from SJ but it's worth it, specially if the day is clear!

I think the first shot would be excellent if a wider shot were used that included the horizon as well.

Yeah, I've been there several times. If you're into hiking and you haven't yet, check out the hike to Alamere Falls. It's a coastal hike to a waterfall that flows into the ocean. Lots of national reviewers call it one of the 10 best hikes in the country.

Justin, I totally agree. Actually, this trip made mebuy the Ryanox DCR 6600PRO wide angle adapter for my H1. Many shots I tookwould greatly benefit from a wide angle lens. I can't wait!!!
