When I arrived at the Point Reyes, I was hoping to get down to the Light House and take some close up photos of it with the ocean in the background. The wind was at hurricane force (is it right term for Pacific?, maybe storm force? hmmm) and access to the Light House was closed. So I had to stay at the top and take some shots from there. I had to put my body weight on the tripod and position my self to block the wind from the camera to keep it stable.
