In December 2016, there were no tourists about. It was cold and windy this early winter afternoon. I had made a visit back in 2000 to this southern point in Point Reyes near the lighthouse. On that trip, the timing led me this viewpoint in the middle of the day in April - not an auspicious moment for a good photograph! This time, after hiding from near gale-force winds for over an hour on the lee side of my camera pack, I began shooting at about 4:10. The "golden hour" came and went. There were some good captures but nothing special. In this digital age, the "blue hour" (after sunset, just before dusk) can be very rewarding. I believe that the "blue hour" combined with insightful knowledge of how to massage your captures in Lightroom, can lead to remarkable results.
