Crescent Moon and Pt. Sur Lightstation, Big Sur

Back in November 2014, my friend Mike Hall and I were driving up the Big Sur coastline when we spotted this scene of a setting crescent moon. There was enough mist coming off the Pacific Ocean to allow the Pt Sur Lightstation beam to create a shaft of light. I knew from experience that it made a complete rotation every 14 seconds. At the count of 13, I would motordrive with my Sony a7S.
