Endurance - Cape Kiwanda, Pacific City, Oregon

Portfolio & Services

Back in June Kendra and I made a quick road trip through Oregon and up to Seattle. It certainly was not a proper photography trip. We needed to make constant progress along the way and only had two days in Oregon. The first was spent in Bandon, the second at Pacific City.

We did get to see a lot of the popular spots along the way such as Seal Rocks, Cape Perpetua, and Heceta Head Lighthouse. We did miss out on a few other spots, but now that we have a taste, a return trip is certain.

Despite how calm it was on the south side of Cape Kiwanda, we were impressed with the wave action once we arrived at this commonly shot vantage point. During the big sets, waves would explode as high as the tops of these sandstone bluffs. Impressive for such a 'calm' day.

I have some long exposures from here which I may post down the road...or tomorrow! I've been on a run of pulling images from the recent past to post up. Hope you don't mind.

    Hi, i am an Art Director for `Howards and Caz`s Gallery` and would be very honoured if you would consider posting your stunning photo into the Gallery.
    This Gallery is so different than anything flickr has done before, as it is a tough Gallery to belong to, and now the bar has raised to Platinum level, and only the best will be accepted, and it is my opinion that this wonderful piece here belongs with us ……. I hope you will consider posting your beautiful photo in, as i feel it has the standard required to be a part of this Gallery......Kind regards..Caz (AD)
