Lighthouse & Sun

Lighthouse & Sun
Originally uploaded by Christiana1986.
The Point Reyes Lighthouse warned mariners off this treacherous stretch of coast from 1870 to 1975. The lighthouse is located far down the cliff in order to be below the often high lying fog characteristic of tis coast. Forged of iron plate and bolted to the rock, it has withstood winds recorded at up to 133 m.p.h.. Today an automated light station continues to a light point considered to be the most foggy and windy in the United States.
