Hecata Lighthouse

Hecata Lighthouse | Oregon | 2017

It was a long trip down the Oregon Coast. I had sunshine on white sandy beaches and spectacular views of a blue Pacific Ocean. I had the incoming seafog turn the coastal rain forest trees to misty giants while hiking along the cliffs of Cape Lookout. I saw seals, and I saw grey whales. My last highlight of this splendid day was the beacon of historic Hecata Lighthouse near Florence, where I’m spending the night. This coast is magic. If you haven’t visited it put in on your bucket list.

The Hecata Head Light was built in 1894, the 56-foot (17 m) tall lighthouse shines a beam visible for 21 nautical miles (39 km; 24 mi), making it the strongest light on the Oregon Coast.

Photo taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom. Image specs are 1/200 sec at f/3.2 and ISO 200. Focal length was 67mm.

Have a good Sunday!

    1. Thank you, Kirk, so much appreciated! This photo was taken from a pull-out on 101, just a bit south of the lighthouse. Another beautiful view you have from down at the Sea Lions cave a mile away where there is an opening in the cliffs just above the waterline. It’s 14 bucks though to go down.
