photoblog image cape meares lighthouse

cape meares lighthouse

The Cape Meares lighthouse is the shortest lighthouse in Oregon.  It also has an abundance of wildlife.  During this visit I watched a seal lion playing in the water,  got some close-ups of cute cottontail bunnies, and to top it all off,  I saw a peregrine falcon chase a bald eagle away from her nest where she had her young. (I got the shot, but had the wrong lens on me.)

I'm off on vacation for the next few days. Visiting the Olympic Peninsula area on the Washington coast just a few hours North.  Looking forward to using my camera!

Enjoy your time off. I'm sure the photographer in you will not be having any time off at all grin

Take care!

Beutifully processed Kay
A wonderful lighthouse! I like the softness of the image. Enjoy your break.
I presume this must be high up Kay as it is so short. Enjoy your few days away.
Lovely warm and soft image Kay. Have a good holiday

i've always dreamed of living in a lighthouse (the fact that i'm not hugely fond of water, crashing waves, doesn't seem to feature too highly. is this one still being used?
Superb capture and PP, lovely colour tones. Hope you have a nice break.
