Oregon and Washington 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!

Today I continue my photos up north. The photos for today are from both Oregon and Washington. I have photos from Astoria (Oregon), Chinook (Washington), Naselle (Washington), and South Bend (Washington). I will also have a few shots of the bridge that joins Washington and Oregon called the Astoria-Megler Bridge.

A long exposure with an ND filter (so no cars would show up) of the Astoria-Megler Bridge. Somehow no cars drove through my long exposure anyways. Photo was shot near that sign above.

A zoomed in shot from around the same spot. My dad went to do #2 at the rest area, so I had a bit of time to shoot. LOL Sadly the panorama I shot didn't stitch right. 

Now in Chinook, WA, a sign welcoming you to Washington.
