Spectre, Thanks for the reminder!That is the Heceta Head Lighthouse, just north of Florence. Very Nice shot.
Nacho, Glad to hear I made you smile! Generally, I have about 15 seconds to do all that in...I'm getting pretty good at the quick-draw! :biggrin:Duane, boy do I know what it is like taking photos with kids around! That brought a smile to my face because quite often I'm with my kids and wife, and well, the experience involves much more than just setting up, looking deeply, working the scene, composing, and taking the shot, etc.
camerapapi, Thanks VERY MUCH for the glowing comments! The gear/setup was even less than it appears...this was handheld and I had about 5 minutes at the side of the road to do it in...lucky for me my boys had a call to nature so I had to pull over, plus my wife brought some snacks. No way I was going to get a sunset out of it, that would have been another 20 minutes or so and we were dangerously low on snacks.It is a very beautiful shot. I like the visual design and the lighting that makes the lighthouse pop in the beautiful light.
I noticed the simplicity of the gear used. Another good example that a good photographer can do outstanding work with the minimum even if he has his family with him.
Palouse, Not at all, the more the merrier!Not meaning to hijack your post--but, I was there on a foggy windy day in mid June.
I've never seen it bright and sunny in 3 trips! Love the saturation you've managed!
Sanford504, That's a good idea, thanks!Beautiful photo. Would make an excellent wall hanging, say about 24x36!
