As always the lighting of Pigeon Point Lighthouse was a stellar event. The evening was warm and clear with just enough ocean mist to get the brilliant beams of the lighthouse to absolutely glow. Unlike my previous visits to the annual lighting this year we were treated to a mostly clear sky with a half moon which as you can see in this image lit the sea foam below. A few high clouds lit the sky but still allowed you to clearly view the stars above. The waves sparkled in the moonlight as they crashed upon the rocks below my vantage point.
