Point Vicente Lighthouse

Today I scouted a new location for a sunset shot. Palos Verdes overlooks the Pacific and provides a wonderful vista. Vicente Point has an old lighthouse that I thought would provide a great fore shot.

Lack of clouds made for harsh lighting but it softened up as the sun met the sea. I learned a few lessons from this scouting trip. This location is better around the summer solstice instead of the winter solstice. The angle is much better.

Next I learned that I should have used my Lee Neutral Density filter to even out the exposure. Next time I will be better prepared to capture a memorable shot.
