Cape Blanco Panoramic

Cape Blanco lighthouse, Oregon Coast, USA. Panoramic stitch of 8 portrait format images, unfortunately due to wave action, the stitch is flawed.

 

From Wiki:

 

Cape Blanco is a prominent headland on the Pacific Ocean coast of southwestern Oregon in the United States, forming the westernmost point in the state. It contests with Cape Alava in Washington for the title of westernmost point in the contiguous United States. This contention is due to land shifts and measurement anomalies as well as whether to measure at high or low tide.

 

It is located in northern Curry County, approximately 5 mi (8 km) north of Port Orford, along a mountainous and isolated stretch of the coast bounded to the east by the Coast Range. The cape is part of Cape Blanco State Park. The cape is the location of the Cape Blanco Light, first lit in 1870.
