This is a small area inside Laguna Beach, California (USA), known as Victoria Beach. While not easily accessible on foot by searching nearby neighborhood streets, it is only a short walk along the shoreline from a nearby parking area.

This is a single exposure HDR taken on a tripod with a Nikon D90 and 18-105mm lens @ f/14, 3 second exposure, 100 ISO. Processed in Photomatix and then edited in Photoshop and Topaz Adjust.

    What is that tower? It looks like a castle; I was surprised to read this is in California. It looks too short and oddly placed to be a lighthouse … so magical and beautiful, though!

  • Thank you so much lily! This tower is known as the Victoria Tower. it was built in 1936 and has an enclosed spiral staircase. Sadly, though, it is no longer in use.
