Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Heceta Head lighthouse, on the coast of Oregon, is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the USA. It was built in 1864 and is the 'strongest' lighthouse on the Oregon Coast in terms of light intensity, with its beam visible 24 miles away. It is also a bed and breakfast.

I have previously posted a photo of the lighthouse during the 'blue hour', but here is one earlier in the day. Did I mention it can get quite foggy? Now you can see why the lighthouse might be needed! This particular image was made during the Oregon Coast workshop that Linda Torbert and I gave last August!

Truth be told, the fog was so dense that in order to give some variation to the gray sky I blended a few textures into the image as well.
