The Tillamook Rock
Lighthouse, just off the coast between Seaside and Cannon Beach, Oregon.
I have spent 30 years photographing this historical lighthouse
from the coastal areas, nearby
beaches, and even some higher elevations where possible.
This image, however, was taken
from a Job Corps boat, The 'Ironwood', out of Tongue Point
(Astoria, Oregon) that I was
priviledged to travel as a visiting photographer. The boat
circled the 'rock' four times
in the course of one hour. Here, one is looking east toward
the coast where I normally
image this unusual and beautiful edifice. We
were only 300-500 feet from the 'rock'.
The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1957, but still stands as a
landmark for local
residents and beach vacationers.
