If you saw my previous post of the lighthouse staircase, looking up from the bottom, here’s a view from the top looking down. There’s a bit of artistic license in this image but it was actually accidental and not planned. I was shooting at a shutter speed that was too slow and must have been a bit off balance giving the appearance of my motion at the top.
Oh, looking at this image, I should also mention that there has been talk that the lighthouse is haunted by ghosts. “In October, 2011, the Carmel Pine Cone newspaper reported that ghost hunter Julie Nantes says the Point Sur Lighthouse is haunted – by 18 or more spirits, so many that it’s considered one of the 10 most-haunted lighthouses in the United States.” The Lighthouse even offers Ghost Tours every October. Who knows… Maybe I was pushed? 😉
This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, EF24-105mm f/4L IS lens, 0.6 sec at f/11, ISO 400 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card.
Kind of a Conjuring moment! In that movie they caught spirits on camera too. New career opportunity!!
Thanks Tracey. I’ll have to consider this a possible new career opportunity…
Wow! Spooky and beautiful! Adds to the story of the ghosts!
I’m liking the ghost idea more & more…
Good morning Marty
Love this photo.
Like this one, some of the most interesting shots are ‘just- happened- to- be- there- at- the- right- moment’, or “accidental”.
We just returned from a week in L.A. visiting grandkids and friends.
Thanks Marc. What you said fits a good Ansel Adams quote— “Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.”
It actually gives me chills! It is a very cool perspective. I won’t be climbing to the top the next time I visit California that’s for sure!
Actually, it was a lot of fun. Glad you all had such a good time on your trip out here.
Love this spirited approach!
Thanks Shari… Love the comment!
