Sea Lions Caves and Florence (Part 1) - 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 viewing 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.

Now I arrive the the Sea Lion Caves in Florence, Oregon. Honestly speaking, I've gotten better views at Pier 39 for free. LOL

 Here is the upper observatory deck in the Sea Lion Caves. 

As you can see, the sea lions are quite far away even with my telephoto lens.  

 A few more shots of the sea lions from the Upper Observatory Deck. 

Here is a photo of the scenery inside Sea Lion Caves with a black and white process.  

Here is a photo of the main building of Sea Lion Caves and the trail down to the upper observatory deck.
