Colorful Skies- Sunset at Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Pigeon Point Lighthouse is one of the picturesque lighthouses on California coast. It is one of the photographer's favorites. I was coming back from a photoshoot-meetup, driving on highway-1 at sunset and I happened to be near this lighthouse. The colorful sky in the background looked amazing! The quiet on the seashore except for the waves was soothing the soul.

The original lens of this lighthouse is illuminated once a year on first sunday of November. It is a wonderful sight!

  5. The sky looks a beautiful crimson and grey. But just look at the water, it is violet! What reflected in it to become violet?! Nature is seriously magical, and this is indeed a gorgeous shot.
