This was taken at Point Reyes Lighthouse north of San Francisco. I was actually setting up to take some shots of the lighthouse from an observation deck above it when this hawk flew by below me. I just fired away on the theory that I wouldn't be too far off since the light was still the same. I figured it was better to get something than nothing.
