You are able to climb this staircase in the upper lighthouse to the base of the light tower. Unfortunately the entrance to the light was locked so I was not able to go up and take pictures of the lens. Point Loma, CA 'Minolta X700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Many of the pictures on this site are scanned from prints. This particular picture was scanned from a slide. Notice the difference in color and saturation between this picture and the previous picture that was scanned from a print. Point Loma, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This view of the lower lighthouse on Point Loma is taken from near the upper lighthouse. The lower lighthouse is actually used as a residence and is closed to the public. You can only see this lighthouse from a distance. There is a road down to the tide pools that allows a closer approach but it does not present the dramatic view seen in this picture.

This view of the military cemetery on Point Loma only shows a small portion of it. It was a very humbling experience to take a picture here where so many soldiers that have severed now rest. I felt honored to be able to walk in their presence. This picture was scanned from a print. Point Loma, CA 'Minolta X700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This picture as well as the next two of the Point Loma cemetery were scanned from slides. Point Loma, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

One more view of the military cemetery. If you look very closely you can see the upper lighthouse at the top of the hill in the far background. Point Loma, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

I came back to this spot in 2004 to find a different look. A new building has been added, all the plants are gone and the paint is not as white. Point Loma, CA 'Nikon D70 Digital SLR' (Click for larger view)
The shot was taken along the path next to a cliff. I was really looking for blue sky but in June there is often a cloud layer that blocks the sky from view. Point Loma, CA 'Nikon D70 Digital SLR' (Click for larger view)
