Yaquina LH in the Fog

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 9 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

CHANGE OF PLAN -Today I had planned to begin unloading a backlog of summer flowers. However, I couldn't wait to post a few shots of our day trip to the Coast to beat the heat. When the inland temperatures are boiling, you generally have fog on the Coast, and so we did. The Yaquina LH on Yaquina Head is the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast.

Nikon D700 1/500 second F/9.0 ISO 200 24 mm (35mm equiv.)

Too bad we are a bit far from the coast to escape our current heat wave.... This reminds me of Newfoundland or Scotland!

Jack I am glad you took the sidestep and posted this one - how cool is this? Literally.
I also really like it because there are lots of lighthouse shots out there, but I think this one is made unique because of how you have placed it within the entire composition and we are really drawn to 2 co-subjects in my opinion - now to me, that is good - I HATE that rule about having 1 subject only - not necessarily necessary in my opinion So anyway the bluffs and the entire scene and color make this a wonderful and unique image I Love it Jack!!

@Denny Jump Photo: Thank you. The fog made for some fun shooting.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

Glad you changed your mind to give us a peek of your day trip. That gull flew overhead at just the right time for you to snap your shutter on this beautiful scene!

Nicely shot, Jack. The coastal fog is so interesting, and when we are inland and so hot, this is a very refreshing sight to see. I can feel cooler just looking at it. Thanks.

Don from spokane, United States

What a nice fog shot on the coast. I like the way the lighthouse is partially obscured. How did you get that bird to fly by at just the right time? :-) Fine image.

@Don: He's under contract. My what birds will do for money.

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

oh gosh, this makes me really wish I was there. I love the mood (and I love fog), and how you've so adeptly captured the fade into the fog from the foreground. Lovely.

Darkness and a lighthouse. A pirate ship in the distance ... looking at the lighthouse! Danger! A picture that reminds me of pirate adventure films! Always go sew in rugged coast with the sea in absentia! A beautiful photograph of the lighthouse Oregon! I noted in my book travel plans to see him in person ... someday! A friend abrzo and many kisses Jack!
