An evening at Point Vicente Lighthouse

Last month, photographer Derek Bourassa visited the Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes. He enjoyed it so much, he could not wait to return with his wife.

When he did, the view certainly did not disappoint. "The evening this photo was made the golden color of the sun was just amazing, as was the sky," Bourassa said. "I wanted to record this moment and be able to look at from time to time."

The image was taken with a Canon 7D.
