As you can see, the trees here in the San Francisco area are reaching their peak colors at this time. I went out yesterday morning in a dense fog and grabbed a couple of shots while I could, as by later today most of the leaves that you see in this shot will be on the ground. There are advisories in place for high winds today that call for sustained winds as high as 40mph (64km) and gusts as high as 75mph (120km).

Located 5 miles south of Pescadero, California is the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. Built in 1871 it, along with the Point Arena Lighthouse, is the tallest lighthouse on the West Coast of the United States at 115 feet (35m) in height. The old Fresnel light was decommissioned in 1972 when a new aerobeacon was installed and the old light is lit only once a year, except for this year (and possibly next year as well). This is due to a long awaited restoration of the tower.
I took this shot last year (2010) when the aerobeacon was extinguished and the old light was turned on at 6PM. For the first 15 minutes, the Fresnel lens was not rotated, which is what created the wonderful streaks of light in the image. This is done to allow the hundred of photographers and other onlookers the opportunity to take such wonderful images as you see here.
The lighthouse is part of the Pigeon Point State Historic Park and additional information can be found on the official website by clicking on the link below.
