I'm glad this never turned into an a(bandon)ed town. #southernwestcoastal #thebigORmove #coquilleriverlighthouse

Coquille River Lighthouse. One of my fave places to snap some photos. #bandonoregon #coquilleriverlighthouse #oregonexplored #traveloregon #oregoncoast #southernoregoncoast

Family outing after work. I aimed the sun into the glass for this effect.

Another beautiful morning. Nice when we can get out after the sun comes up these days. #bandon #oregoncoast #lighthouse #coquilleriverlighthouse #dailylighthousepic

There is something about lighthouses that fascinates me. But if you think about it they're basically just glorified flashlights, most of which don't even work anymore. Architecturally speaking they're fairly utilitarian, and the blueprints were often re-used so they aren't even unique (ex. Umpqua River and Heceta Head are identical). But I can't resist. Perhaps it's the setting. These beacons are by necessity located in places with the roughest waves and most rugged coastlines. They are associated with danger, often isolated and abandoned, have a rich history, and are packed full of symbolism. They have all the necessary elements to create drama, the only thing they're missing to make them relevant again is a Kardashian and a few presidential tweets about how we're gonna make Mexico pay to restore them.

Last weekend I was able to visit the portion of the Oregon Coast that had so far escaped me. It’s nice to know that it is just as amazing! Took a few beautiful shots at this lighthouse. Lots of character and a beautiful sunset! .
