Just got back from a week of exploring the Oregon coast. Drove from Portland to Bandon over night to get the first light of sunrise. Then drove on to stay near Brookings, Oregon for a week.

The light for the Bandon sunrise was a bit of a disappointment. Too much fog, but it was still a surreal setting and this just means I will have to come back again for another trip along the coastline. You can read more about the trip and see the photo galleries in the Ocean Landscape photography section of my site.

Over all it was a great trip. Met a couple of photographers from a photo forum I hang out at half way into the trip. They were great to hang out with. My wife and I enjoyed their company a lot. Now we just need to find a way to make a living in Brookings so we can move there someday.

We traveled from Brookings all the way up the coastline to Cannon Beach. For the most part we had perfect weather and I was up at 5am everyday for the sunrise and was also shooting well into the evening for those fantastic sunsets.

Areas we got to explore include Harris beach, Lone Ranch, Whalehead Beach, Arch Rock, Natural Bridges, Samual Boardman Scenic Corridor, Hunters Cove, Cape Sebastian, Bandon Beach, Heceta Head Lighthouse, Cooks Chasm, Devil’s Cauldron, Yachats, Seal Rock, Yaquina Head Lighthouse, Cape Kiwanda, Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park.
