Lighthouses like reflections are probably the most photograph objects near water. That being said, there is still a romantic notion, a sense of history and adventure associated with these wonderful landmarks along the Oregon coast.Our photo workshop location was strategic to 3 of these landmarks which gave ample opportunity to test our compositional chops on these familiar landmarks.
Unfortunately, the Heceta Head lighthouse was closed for renovation. We were still able to shoot from a distance, across the bay to get some “overviews” of this historic landmark.

We also visited the Yaquina Bay lighthouse but it required climbing a bunch of steps and after giving up so much blood, none of us were up to the climb. Besides, no one could assure us that the flies didn’t follow us. Nasty little buggers!
