Point Loma Lighthouse
We drove to the Sunglass and Optical Warehouse today to buy new sunglasses.
As the weather was sunny with beautiful clouds and in the mid-70's we decided to drive the short distance to the Lighthouse for a walk.
There's a trail that goes down to the water that we took and on the way back to the car I saw the Lighthouse with this backlighting which I couldn't resist.
I also decided to post this shot with monochrome processing (see below) for the monthly challenge.
I like the top one better. What do you think?

Nikon D300 ,Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AF

Top one - sky is more dramatic and I don't like the blue cast on the lower one.
