The Lighthouse Life – Featured Art Print from my Color Photography Collection

The art print I wanted to feature today is from my Color Photography Collection titled “The Lighthouse Life”.  The print is a color photograph of a lighthouse sitting on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon Coastline.

The lighthouse in this art print is the Heceta Head Lighthouse. Located along Pacific Coast Highway on the Oregon Coast, Heceta Head dates back to 1893. The setting and views are incredible with the lighthouse situated on a bluff rising 205 feet above the ocean. The structure in the right portion of the art print is the Light Keeper’s house. A path connects the two structures and there is also a path down to the beach. Both structures were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. From 2011 to 2012, the lighthouse structure itself was closed for restoration. It was officially Re-opened to the public on June 8, 2013.

This particular lighthouse is considered one of the most photographed lighthouses along the Oregon Coast. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first reason is the setting itself with the lighthouse perched on the point above the surf of the ocean. The second reason is the ability to see the lighthouse setting from the south along the coastal highway. A number of lighthouses can only be seen when you get to them, not many can be see in such a panoramic manner. I have used this particular photograph as a basis for paintings in my Lighthouse Collection using both oil techniques and watercolor. Thoughts?

I invite you to come into the gallery to view the new additions to the collection in Color Photography.

      I would imagine the sea is pretty rough there. The coastal highway has a turn off for the light keepers house. From the house you can follow the trail to the lighthouse. This shot was from the highway right after you come around a bend. Thanks for stopping by Miia!!

        Lovely. I don’t know much about that state but I remember there are whales too. Have you seen them 🙂 ?

        Have you taken holidays this summer? I recently got back to Paris and am still struggling…

        We have seen whales….they migrate along the west coast in the winter. Beautiful when they breech. (Jump out of the water and flip over)
        How is summer there ? Very hot here in the southwest US… 114 F here yesterday! We are taking holiday in Sept to go up to Seattle.. Our youngest lives up there! Take Care And thanks for dropping by!

        Nice! I saw whales in Costa Rica and they were impressive.

        114F is hot!!!

        The weather was amazing in Finland, 25C when I was there, and since I left, it has increased to 30C. I think it has been the best July since 50 years! (Finland is a country of extreme weather conditions, and it can also be cold in summer, no guarantees..)

        Paris is just humid and sticky.. Nowhere to go swimming except the swimming pools, so not that much of fun… But on the positive side, the city is quite empty because most Parisians away, so less pollution etc!

        Have a great weekend.
