Cape Arago Lighthouse

I hadn’t really done any research before arriving at Sunset Bay, Oregon. Sometimes I just like not knowing so that I can shoot things without any preconceptions. I was pleasantly surprised when I got there to find out that there were three lighthouses pretty close to where we were camping. I always like to shoot lighthouses so of course I had to visit them. This is the first one we saw while doing a short 4 mile round trip hike from the Sunset Bay State Park Campground to Shore Acres. You get some pretty nice views of the coastline and the Cape Arago Lighthouse which is located just off the mainland on a small island. Unfortunately it’s closed to the public so you can’t get right up to it. I recommend bringing a long lens.
