Angel Island had several lights on it. However, when I was there in January, the ferry service was shut down for the season. Since there was no way over there, I did the best I could with my telephoto lens and the roads around the area. The photo above is the light that sits on the north west side of the island, which I learned is Point Stuart. Joyce Pedersen has a great close up shot of this lighthouse on Flickr.
Directions: The lighthouse sits on the northwest end of Angel Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay. When I was there in January of 1999, the ferry service to the island was shut down. Having no way to the island, I improvised and found a vantage point in Tiburon. From Highway 101 heading south, exit at Tiburon Blvd. (CA Route 131.) Follow this south for some ways until you come to Beach Road. Take Beach Road to Blanding Lane. From Blanding Lane (really skinny road) you will be able to see a light on the side of Angel Island. It is on the north west side of the island. I used a 500mm zoom lens, but a 1000mm would have allowed a better picture.
