Lower Lighthouse - Point Loma
(Click each image for an enlargement) Cabrillo
slide show I had some fun taking pictures of the Lower Lighthouse at
Cabrillo National Monument. I setup my tripod. Put on my new telephoto
converter and shot away. Later, back at home, I 'dressed' up these photos with
several imaging procession tools on my PC.
I changed the color balance and rotated crooked images. I also stitched together
quite a number of panorama shots, one shown here.
For photos 1, 2 and 4, below, I was high above the lower lighthouse. In fact, I
was quite a distance away and facing the sun. Tricky business photographing
into the sun but my G2 lets me pick from three different metering modes so that
I can get the exposure right even in these tricky circumstances.
The panoramic shot shows the wonders of the pacific coast in and around San
