Cape Blanco State Park, Coos Bay, North Bend - Oregon Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Oregon photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 3 photos, use this link.

Today I continue my trip north along the Oregon Coast. Photos from today are from Cape Blanco State Park (Sixes, OR), Coos Bay, and North Bend.

Message from the Photographer: I got the order of the blog posts a bit screwed up. This one was actually suppose to be before the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area post. Sorry!

I then shot a few photos in the Hughes House. Good thing I caught them while they are open! This house is usually not open to the public. I'm also glad they allowed camera tripods. These were pretty long exposures. 


A few more shots inside the Hughes House. 


I then drive to Cape Blanco Lighthouse in Cape Blanco State Park.

A portrait shot of the lighthouse. It was sure hard to take a photo of! The wind was blowing strong. So strong, I actually had trouble walking toward the lighthouse! Trying to get a grip on the grass trying to go. One false move, I would have probably been blown back a few feet. That was how strong the wind was that day.

I continue my drive up north. Here is a photo of the Conde McCullough Memorial Bridge in North Bend, Oregon. 

Here are 2 more photos from North Bend, Oregon. 

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I have more photos from Oregon's Coast. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members!
