Shot at Cape Kiwanda on I think the only sunny day in about a month and 1/2 on the coast that I was able to enjoy this summer. Any comments would be great! Thanks for looking. Chip

Narrow minded people..


Who are they?

How do they think?


Narrow minded people are people who can look through a key-hole with both eyes at once.


They are people that only know one way, and no other way.


There is no "adjustment" or "change" to them.


They only know one thing, and will not accept any other.


It's either what they know, or nothing else.

They will never accept substitutes.


Let us not be of this kind.

We should accept every change or adjustment in our lives, and we should adapt


to these changes and learn from other people's mistakes.

Here is an image from Cape Kiwanda, one of my favorite beaches on the Oregon Coastline. I spent the better half of Saturday scrambling around the sand dunes in the beautiful warm weather. The winds were also gusting pretty decent so climbing the large sand dunes multiple times was literally real sand shower! The sky was pretty clear so unfortunately there was no real “epic” opportunity for sunset, so I pretty much played around in the Tunnel and Key Hole.

Through some exploring I have found 2 natural arches or key holes along the Oregon Coast....


This was shown to me by a friend and then I happened to do some scouting around and found another one nearby....


nothing fancy here, I was just enjoying the sunset!

The waterfalls at the end of The Subway at Left Fork of North Creek, Zion National Park, Utah.


I haven' t seen any shots of this waterfalls from other photo enthusiasts so I decided to give it a try. Let me know what you think.

Spent sometime at the Oregon Coast this Holiday weekend, hoping to get some photography in despite the weather forecast, cause it’s not like they are always right, right? Of course this weekend they were right and I spent two day in torrential down pours, flooding, high tides and high winds. Still a great getaway and a fun time, just limited my pushing of the shutter, which I have been really missing lately.


I had planned out shooting Kiwanda for sunrise on day one. The weather was light rain, so I was hopeful and decided to shoot the Key Hole, I could be lazy and drive up close on the beach on thought, well the tides were very high and after playing cat and mouse for a while, realized I could not make it as the tides were rolling all the way up the shore, so I headed back up to the other side by the Pelican Pub to rethink my strategy as I watched the dark sky’s start to change into shades of grey. At his point dejected looking at the ocean, I noticed a speeding bullet in my rear view mirror, coming straight at me I thought what the heck?? At the last second a grey Scion turns sharply in an aggressive manner spinning around in the sanding parking lot, like a teenager in an empty mall snowy parking lot. It didn’t take me but a couple of seconds to figure it out, I knew the car, I knew the driving style, and a quick text confirmed it was Mr. Aaron Reed trying to defeat the weather forecasts as well. After a few minutes of conversation, I headed back to walk to the key hole, while Aaron headed to the haystack, Who else are you going to run into in the rain and wind at 6 in the morning? A fellow photographer of course!


Hope everyone has a great week!!

Twin Rock, Rockaway Beach, OR.


Just like its big cousin, Key Hole at Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur, CA, the hole in one of the Twin Rocks at Rockaway Beach aligns with the sun at sunset on rare occasions. When it happens, golden rays of the sun pour out of this unique opening and when the sun is aligned, you can capture sunbursts or even the setting sun. The key hole has an Azimuth of about -259 deg. This means that in order to capture the sun through this hole, the sunset needs to happen at about 11 degrees south of west. At Rockaway Beach, this happens only twice a year; once around the third week of February and again around the third week of October. But the northern Oregon coast is mostly cloudy and stormy during these times. No wonder then, there are not very many pictures of this phenomenon from this spot! Last weekend, when we visited this beach, the sky was very clear and there was only one other photographer with a tripod. Please refer to my previous pictures from this series. I will be publishing a few more pictures from this shoot until the light was gone. This picture was taken right after the previous one, when the sun was hidden by the top left corner of the rock. The shafts of light was intense.


I liked the way shafts of sunlight were pouring out of the hole in the rock. I did not notice the inverted heart shape of the hole at that time; it was blindingly bright. Even after using live view on the camera most of the time, I was blacking out.

Under the bridge on Kilfaressey Strand,Co.Waterford.After very heavy rain overnight and morning,a huge volumn of water came through under the bridge from the valley behind onto the strand and out to sea.

This image shows an emission nebula containing an incredible amount of dust. At the centre, the Key Hole Nebula can be seen. The Keyhole is roughly 9000 light years away and can be seen with a small telescope.


This object was imaged on the nights of the 3rd and 4th of March 2015 from the suburbs of Melbourne. Australia. Conditions were a little below average, temperature 15 C, windows up to 5 meter per second winds. Imaging had to be cut a little short just before midnight as the clouds rolled in. The scheduled full moon was on the following night the 5th of March. This may have resulted in a little lost contrast.


I managed 4 X 1000, 6 X 1200, and a single 1500 second sub, all in Ha. Total time - 3.5 hours.


Seeing was a little below average on both nights, and gusty.

Well in the last 3 weeks I have lost my job and about £2000 with it when the company went under. I have been offed a new job with a brand new company which means we have to designed a new product. I also am trying to organise my first exhibition of my photographic work and on top of that I may have to have key hole surgery on my shoulder ! AAaaaaarrggghh !!!!! So this is why I have been absent from all my Flickr friends....I managed to re hash an older picture of mine by adding a nice dramatic sunset so I hope you like ....

If you are looking for something new to pass time…I’ve stumbled across and device you absolutely cannot live without.


It’s called a Zip’it. I think….or something like that. It’s purpose. Remove hair from your shower drain. It looks like a something that you would find in a kid’s toy box….its a long 15” piece of plastic, with small hooked upturns along the entire length. There is a ring at one end for you to hold.


Actually, the device is as uninspiring to look at as it sounds…but what it DOES is utterly amazing.


Take the device to your shower drain…feed the plastic in as far in as you can…..then get ready for excitement.


If you have ever wondered what it would look like to pull a rat through a key hole by its tail….well, my friend your wait is over.


The plastic, now in place, is ready for action…PULL IT! Then…magic. Out comes a mix of hair…old shampoo…and other gunk. It’s actually really, really horrible to look at…and smells…but still, you stare. You’re amazed. Was there really a Chewbacca sized hairball living in my tub drain?




You’ll try it several more times…to see how much hair you can extricate from your tub…but sadly…the first couple pulls are always the best….BUT if you have a wife with long hair like me….you can rest assured that like all good holidays…next year you’ll be able to enjoy the fun all over again.


Maybe I need to get out more….


Here’s a nice shot from Emerald Bay the evening Stephen and I shot there. The funniest part of this shot was that I had taken my shower cap off my camera to shoot…lacking a spot to put the cap while I photographed, I put it on my head. A carload of Japanese tourists pulled up some time later and started taking photos of me….I couldn’t figure out why. When it started to sprinkle again…I went to get my camera condom…and remembered it was on my head. Then I knew why they were taking photos of me.


Along with some others, I'm re-posting this in memory of the keyhole arch that I heard has colapsed. I wish I could have got a few better shots with more water flow, but this will have to be my memory.

Welcome to the Oregon Coast, Your "Keyhole" to the Pacific North West !


Please take a moment and view this on black here B l a c k M a g i c and viewing it large :)


This is a natural arch in the sandstone rock formations at Cape Kiwanda on the Oregon coast. I was inspired to shoot this after seeing Miles (mm767cap) shot he recently posted which you can see here The colors throughout the rock is incredible and quite a sight to be seen.


We went here hoping for a nice summer sunset, but it wasn't in the cards, as the fog and low hanging clouds prevented any sunset to be seen. This is quite typical on our coast when it's very hot in the valley.


"Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks and the setting sun with the last light of Durin's Day will shine upon the key-hole."


Built for the Eurobricks Middle Earth Contest.

Built in 1875, 143 Norfolk Street is now in the heart of the downtown commercialism and is used for offices. The brick and stone are local. The architecture is late Italianate influence with its iron-crested belvedere. As with many Guelph homes, this one has a key-hole window. Notice the well-kept coach house at the back.
